BENCHMARKS

Score of 70+ – Serious need to refocus

Score of 50-69 – Need to refocus

Score of 30-49 – Some areas of refocus may be needed

In my work with over 90 churches, I have discovered that no matter what the size, each church has challenges around the issue of consistently and effectively aligning all they do with the mission of making disciples. Because of that, I am constantly looking for resources that I can use that would boost their disciple-making capacity. Of all of the materials I have examined, ReFocus in the best tool I have found for helping churches revitalize. It incorporates Biblical principles directly related to church health and leadership in a scalable and highly integrative fashion. I would heartily recommend it to any pastor or denominational leader who is serious about moving their church back towards mission.
