Providing a Vibrant Path
to a Hope-filled Future!
Invitation to take the first step.
Larry Doornbos, the Director of Vibrant Congregations, shares with you how we will help your church discern your next faithful, fresh step in ministry and mission.
Together we will assess where your church is currently at in its lifecycle —then invite you to discern, pray, and connect with a partner organization that fits best with your church’s unique ministry journey and that will help guide you in taking fresh steps.
We invite you to take that first step by taking Vibrant Congregations’ free lifecycle assessment.
Creating Greater Collaboration
for Church Renewal
Although Vibrant Congregations is not a renewal organization, we are really good at helping congregations find their best partner for renewal.
A lot of work went into developing the Vibrancy Pathway, a conversational and interactive approach involving church leadership in discovering their best partner.
To assure that leadership listens well, we provide tools to listen to the voice of God, the voice of the congregation, and the voice of leadership.
This listening leads to a Friday/Saturday guided event where all information is gathered and reflected on.
This information leads to an Insights report and suggestions for a renewal partner.
Here is what some of our partners are saying about the need for church renewal...
Life Cycle AssessmentThis assessment helps a congregation discover where they are currently in their lifecycle. (This then leads into the Discernment Process Pathway.)
Church Now ConversationsOne of the things that we love to do is develop leaders. Church Now Conversations does just that. We virtually bring in a leader and we ask them to tell us what they think the church needs to know right now.
Church Now CafeChurch Now Cafe is an interactive gathering (not a conference!) that is built to stimulate life-giving conversations among church leaders on what is happening with our identities (amidst all the many disruptions) and what opportunities are currently arising with the local church.
DevotionalsWe provide leadership devotionals that are sent weekly via email. They are a collaborative effort with Churches Learning Change, CRC's Women's Leadership Ministry, CRC Diversity, and the RCA's Women's Transformation and Leadership.
