The Vital Congregations Project website resource is now available. This resource is designed to help congregations understand the Call to Action's adaptive challenge to "redirect the flow of attention, energy and resources to an intense concentration on fostering and sustaining an increase in the number of vital congregations effective in making disciples of Jesus Christ."
As an organic, continuously growing and expanding tool, we invite every Bishop, District Superintendent, Conference Staff member, Senior Minister, Associate Minister and member of The United Methodist Church to utilize this site to help congregations move towards health and vitality.
This site provides:
A few elements of the site are still in progress including the Multi-Rater Inquiry tool, the "Achieving the Goals" tab with resources and the by District and by Conference access. Each conference will be given a log in to reach the administrative page for access to this information. More on this information will be shared as it is developed.
We welcome thoughts, celebrations, constructive critiques and any other feedback you can offer that will help the Church as we continue to develop and refine this tool for congregational health and vitality throughout The United Methodist Church. Please contact us at VitalCongregations@umc.org
