Getting started with the Church Development Tool
What is your church great at? What support would your congregation like to grow in faith, share their faith and serve their local community?
The Church Development Tool can help you find out - it's a short anonymous survey you ask your worshipping community to complete online. See how to set it up through AChurchNearYou.com.
