The health of a church is often directly related to the health of its pastor. Pastor, how often do you ask yourself, “How am I doing?” Compass has been created to help you answer this essential question.
We want your church to stay healthy so you can continue to impact your community for Jesus. Compass provides support for pastors just like you and helps them through the challenges of leading a church. It helps Converge districts and churches serve pastors who desire a checkup. Maybe you’ve reached a ministry milestone, are considering activities for a sabbatical or simply feel burned out. Compass gives you the tracks to run on to make the most of your ministry.
Directing pastors to greater fruitfulness Jesus said we are to bear much fruit (John 15:5-8). Compass provides you (the pastor) and your spouse an opportunity to evaluate fruitfulness by:
defining your current reality,
dreaming about a preferred fruitful future, and
helping connect you with a strategic pathway moving forward.
You and your spouse will walk away from Compass with your own personalized, self-developed guide to help you eliminate barriers and build a framework to move forward and increase fruitfulness in your ministry.
Following the gathering, we will connect with you and your spouse quarterly on video coaching calls to encourage you as you follow through on your strategic plan.
Time for a checkup?
It’s never a bad time for a checkup. If you are interested in looking at where you are in ministry, learning how you can face your ministry challenges and move forward to bear fruit, contact your local Converge district.
Whether striving forward or struggling, every church needs a partner to come in and look ‘under the hood’ of their ministry. Converge helped us be better in every area to effectively bring the good news to all people.
