This document is an easy way to locate your church alongside similarly sized churches who often share the same strengths and challenges. These are generalizations, and while there are always exceptions,
your chart can be a helpful reference. Begin by “finding yourself on the map” and then identify ways your church can grow to the next level. Pay close attention to the expectations for “growth in impact” columns, as these are
key ways a church can proactively increase its capacity for mission.
