Church Leadership and Organizational Development Team

The EFCA West church health team is here to serve you by:

  • helping churches create and sustain healthy and effective leadership teams with organizational systems and structures aligned with each church’s unique vision and strategy.
  • coming alongside churches and leadership teams to help during times of transitions such as pastoral staff changes, re-visioning processes, or times of sudden or unanticipated change.
  • coming alongside churches for leadership training and development among pastors, staff, elders, and ministry leaders.

How we help you

By being there for you and your church as:

  • a trusted-friend, third-party, neutral advisor and confidant for developing and implementing strategies for teambuilding among pastors, staff and lay leaders
  • someone to talk to
  • someone to provide guidance
  • someone who’s been there before
  • someone to help build bridges between team members
  • someone to help church leadership learn
  • some to help church leaders see what might be too close to them to see themselves
  • someone to throw church leaders a lifeline

We want to help you reach the vision and dreams for your local church, and for you to help us do the same for others.
