Ready to get healthier?

start the journey with the Church health Evaluation
Every pastor wants their church to be healthier.
But there's a problem...

Getting healthier feels overwhelming and it's impossible to know where to start

There are so many church health models it's hard to know who to trust

Getting healthier requires too much time and money 

Church health models are overly prescriptive and don't fit my context

Assessments and reports are hard to interpret causing more confusion than clarity

There are blindspots pastors can't see that make it hard to make progress

Frequently asked questions

Who came up with the 10 characteristics?

The 10 Characteristics framework and this evaluation were created by ministry practitioners (pastors, missionaries, consultants, administrators, scholars), from within the New York Ministry Network, with decades of experience both leading and growing healthy churches.

Who will see my evaluation results?

There are 2 people who will have access to your church's results. The Lead Pastor of your church will get the team report sent directly to their email once everyone has completed it. The NYMN Learning Director will have access only because they are an administrator on the evaluation software.

How many people can I invite to take the evaluation?

You can invite as many people as you want. The more people that respond the more clarity you get on how healthy your church is. The only thing to consider is that they fit into one of the three different roles (Staff and Ministry Team Leaders, Board Members, Volunteers).

I'm not tech savvy. How hard is it to set up?

Don't worry. We've designed this to be as simple as possible, even for those who don't consider themselves to be tech savvy. There are step-by-step PDFs, videos, and support at every stage of the process. All you have to do is follow the directions. And if something gets dicey, just reach out to us and a member of the healthy church team will be happy to assist you. 

What happens once I get my results?

Once you get your report you can immediately start working towards health by engaging resources specific to the results. There are also self-coaching videos that will help you take the next steps with your team and turn the insights into action.
