Church consultancy is in its infancy in the Australian church but I foresee a growing need as pastoring continues to accelerate in its complexity.
So here’s 4 reasons that should make a pastor pick up the phone & call in church consultants:
1. When the average age of your congregation is significantly older than the surrounding region
2. When you have Mercs & Jaguars in your car park & the carports in the surrounding suburb are filled with Datsun 1600′s
3. Whenever you are making significant & high impact changes, especially with staff
4. When your church hits middle age – even churches are prone to a mid life identity crisis
