Teaching Servant Leadership to Pastors and Churches
Mark Langley , Consultant, United States

Teaching the leadership methodology of Jesus to pastors and churches

I use a consultation method to help churches become more effective and healthy.
The methodology begins with pastor and staff leadership development. They subscribe to CoachNet and will recieve monthly coaching calls and sessions. The sessions will pertain to weakness which are listed in the Strengths Finder leadership assessment tool.
After six months of coaching, the church leadership team will lead the church congregation in a strategy development process. We begin with questionaires and interviews. The epositions taken from the interviews along with information gleaned from the surveys forms a church report. The consultant gives the report and then with the help of the pastoral leadership team prepares a strategy summit. During this summit the church begins to formulate it mission, purpose, vision, and values.
From these statements, strategies are developed around the six funtions of the church: evangelism, discipleship, fellowship, ministry, worship, and prayer. Spiritual gifts tests, personality inventories, passion lists, are all given to indicate which team function to join.
The groups use prayer and brain storming to determine the will of God concerning each of the functions of the church. The summit of teams builds a strategy for the church to implement for one year.
Success is measured numerically by recording increased growth in attendance. A 15 - 18% increase indicates that the church is shaping healthier attitudes and habits.
The leadership team will conduct this church assessment every two years.
