Congregational Consulting

Congregations of all sizes and levels of vitality find that an outside voice can help them see themselves and new directions for their ministry. Every congregation faces different issues and possibilities. For more information about our consultants and coaches, contact VCI at: or at 703.598.9536.

The VCI Team has extensive experience in “transition to transformation,” the process of leading congregations to enhance and expand the vitality they are already experiencing, to embrace a new future and to discern the issues of vision, organization, and change leadership that it entails.

Consulting arrangements will be shaped to fit the needs of an individual church or regional governing body.  VCI will provide one-on-one time with a coach or consultant by phone or onsite.  VCI offerings include but are not limited to:

  • Weekend visitation and assessment with Phased Follow-Up
  • Performing "SWOT "Analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats)
  • Applying Demographic Analyses to your ministry
  • Growing and improving your volunteer ministry

Developing specific ministries such as:

  • Improving the work of your ruling board
  • Moving from a church "with" Small Groups to a church "of " Small Groups
  • Transforming your church with Ministry Teams
  • Improving office management and church administration
  • Meeting facilitation
  • Phone consultation

Consider the following questions:

  • Is your congregation or governing body outwardly-focused with a missional heart? What fruit is it producing?
  • Is your congregation growing disciples? How do you know?
  • Is your congregation gaining momentum and energy, treading water or losing vitality?
  • Would your congregation benefit from a ministry assessment and a fresh focus on its future?

According to your needs, we will connect you with one of our consultants or with other consultants and ministries that may be best positioned to understand your situation and provide a process to encourage the growing fruitfulness of your ministry.
