CHURCH HEALTH

Not even lying

Church health is essential to enable a church to fulfill its purpose. Health is not the end in itself but enables the church to live out its mission. GWFC is committed to support local churches with resources and support for churches through providing discipleship resources, pastoral support network and pastoral care network. We reach out and respond to struggling churches to journey with them in difficult times. Our desire is for healthy churches living out what they are called to be.

7 STEPS OF HEALTHY CHURCH

GWFC has discerned 7 characteristics of how a healthy Church is led:


1. Spiritual Leader (Pastor)
2. Clear Vision, Purpose, Values and Strategy
3. Good Governance Structure and Processes
4. Developing Leaders & Empowering Members
5. Balanced Outward and Inward Focus
6. Church Planting Mindset
7. Purposeful Infrastructure

GWFC has also discerned 5 strongholds that undermine transition to healthy leadership:


1. Personal Agendas
2. Resistance to Change
3. Disunity
4. Lack of Love Amongst its Members
5. Pride


GWFC commit to helping Churches transition to healthier Church leadership, through offering a church health specialist to join your church leadership as a guest for a season, in addition to an ongoing pastor mentor relationship.
