Phase 1: Assess
Our Skill Mapping survey helps you discover the unique vocational and gifting profile of your congregation.
The Made to Flourish Skill Mapping survey uses 14 targeted questions to help you discover the unique vocational and gifting profile of your congregation. The survey results produce a catalog of your people’s jobs, skills, and service interests. You’ll get detailed information like:
- What percentage of your congregation works in particular fields such as health care or education
- What areas of service your members share interest in
- Where in your community your congregation is most gifted to engage
Once deployed, the Skill Mapping survey takes just five minutes for each congregant to complete.
To make your survey results actionable, we’ll present a written assessment, and you will then get a one-hour consultation call, during which we’ll help you assess your survey results and use the data to build a vocationally informed vision for your congregation.
***Our Skill Mapping survey is free and we provide all the support to get you up and running. You don’t need to commit to the Church Practicum in order to make use of the survey, and for a small fee, we’ll help you interpret the data.
Phase 2: Plan
We’ll help you craft unique plans for vocationally informed discipleship and mission in the life of your church.
Join us at our three-day intensive where we’ll brainstorm
with you, help you craft unique plans for vocationally informed discipleship and mission in the life of your church, and assign you a coach to help move your plans forward.
You will hear from experienced practitioners and will discuss topics like prayers and songs, stories and vocational imagination, sermon preparation, vocation in learning pathways, community partners, initiatives of congregants, church-organized initiatives, and more.
Your team will have the opportunity to connect with other churches from around the country who are walking through the same process with you. During our time together, Practicum facilitators will challenge and support your church team as you brainstorm and ideate the best way for your congregation to close the Sunday to Monday gap and form an action plan to bring back to your church.
Phase 3: Implement
Your coach will work with you for four sessions — three one-on-ones and one cohort session — during the six months following the intensive.
As you complete your plans and begin to implement them
at home, your coach will continue to walk alongside you. You receive four coaching sessions — three one-on-ones and one cohort session — over the six months following the intensive. These are the themes covered during your time with your coach and your cohort.
