So Your Church Needs a Communication Audit - Now What?

Clear communication sets the stage for successful engagement. It is therefore crucial that you make the time to take a thorough look at whether your communication process is effective in engaging people to serve and get involved, or not.

A healthy system adheres to a regular rhythm, is attentive to current events and changing needs, and inspires active and regular participation. It also has a strong online presence and communicates via the most popular websites and social-media platforms.

3 Ways to Help Measure the Health of Your Church

 

“For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. For each tree is known by its own fruit.” – Luke 6:43-44.

These were the words of Jesus which still ring true to this day. A good tree will carry healthy fruit that will be nourishing to the body while a bad tree will show signs of disease and its fruits will most likely not be edible. 

In a similar way when you’re sick your body experiences signs and symptoms which indicate that you might have a medical problem. Signs are physical evidence that your body is fighting off a disease whereas symptoms are internal and can only be perceived by the patient. So how do doctors find the cause? They wait for the lab results, study the medical metrics and try to deduce what might be the source of the disease or infection.

Church health can be gauged the same way.

Pastoral Care Made Easy With ChMS

“Take care and be on guard for yourselves and for the whole flock over which the Holy Spirit has appointed you as overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He bought with His own blood.” – Acts 20:28
