The Acts 2 Model

One size does not fit all

CTI does not have a “cookie cutter” approach to church health. Every
church is different in context, size, location, culture, personality, strengths,
and weaknesses. However, we have discovered several common needs
churches seem to have. In one survey, eight significant needs surfaced.

The top three were:

  1. Volunteer recruitment (how to get people from the pew into lay
    ministry and how to move people from spectators to participants)
  2. Spiritual formation (discipleship deficiencies have become a
    real problem—how to get people to practice what they say
    they believe)
  3. Leadership development (how can I become a more effective leader
    that develops other leaders)

The remaining five were:

  1. Administration
  2. Relationships
  3. Parenting
  4. Communication
  5. Becoming more missional (how to get people more
    outward focused)

Many of you may identify with these findings. Whether you have one or
many of the needs mentioned, we absolutely believe every pastor and
person has a next-level potential and are convinced that every church,
including yours, also has a next-level potential.
