Congregational Consultation

Helping You Find Success With Personalized Coaching

Feel Like It’s Time for Your Congregation to Make a Change,

But Can’t Seem to Find a Way?

Leading a congregation is rarely an easy task. Seasons of growth and expansion bring questions about choosing the best path forward and how to maintain community unity. Seasons of decline usher in feelings of fear and grief. Times of stability can even lead to questions of missed opportunities and growing complacent. Rarely is leading a community an easy task.

Many pastors and leaders find it helpful to invite someone from outside the community to help discern opportunities and navigate difficult conversations.

The leadership team at APITC has decades of experience working with congregations exactly like yours. While the actual people will be different, many of the fears, worries, joys, and celebrations will be the same. We bring all our experience to help your congregation be the most effective it can be in fulfilling your mission and vision.

All initial consultations are free. We welcome the opportunity to learn about the needs of your community, and how we may be able to help you.

Three ways APITC can help

Discerning a Path Forward

If we are not intentional it is very easy for congregations to fall into the trap of doing the same thing year after year.

There are some places where planning in such a way might work.

It is important to realize the rapid rate of change that is taking place all around us. How is your congregation adapting their methods to more effectively accomplish your mission and vision?

Our facilitators can help you think through current best practices and design a plan for moving forward.

Conflict Resolution

Conflict is a normal part of community life.

Conflict is especially common within communities going through seasons of transformation. Whether it be a season of growth or decline, change makes personal relationships more difficult to navigate.

We need an approach to conflict that will allow for restoration, transformation, and renewal of relationships.

At APITC we talk about learning to live and move as peacemakers. Let us help equip your congregation to be peacemakers.

Worship Renewal

Facilitating worship is one of the most important things your congregation does.

There are plenty of service groups, and places to expand knowledge or build relationships within our communities. Worship is that one thing our congregations do that cannot be replaced.

We believe each community has a unique set of worship norms that should guide how you lead people into the presence of God. Discerning, celebrating, and living into those norms is essential.

Let us help you discover your community’s unique worship norms.
