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.

Congregations engaging the Vibrancy Pathway find it a helpful and wonderful tool for

Through a series of listening sessions conducted in 2018, churches asked for someone to cut through the clutter of the many renewal opportunities by having an organization that helps churches find their best path to renewal.
