    The Secret to Multi-site Success

    The Secret to Multi-site Success

    Launching multiple sites has been a top “go to” strategy for church expansion for three decades. Of the 70 multi-site churches that have fielded the REVEAL for Church survey, a large percentage fall into the more spiritually vibrant archetypes. But while many multi-site strategies have been great successes, there have been failures along the way. In this episode, we examine what REVEAL data show about the spiritual vibrancy of multi-site churches and talk with Jim Tomberlin about strategies for successful expansion into multiple campuses. Jim has launched many multi-site congregations and is the founder of a consulting organization called Multisite Solutions.

    The Magic of the Multicultural Church

    The Magic of the Multicultural Church

    About 7% of the churches in the REVEAL database are multicultural churches, with at least 20% of congregants being of diverse ethnicities. These churches are among the most spiritually vibrant of the churches who have taken the survey. In this episode, we share the impressive statistics that show the vibrancy of multicultural churches and speak with Albert Tate, founding pastor of Fellowship Monrovia Church in California, which is a thriving multi-ethnic, multi-generational congregation.

    The Surprising State of the Average Church

    The Surprising State of the Average Church

    In this episode, we open the REVEAL database to share some surprising information about what “average” looks like. Having surveyed more than 2,000 churches, REVEAL’s database provides a statistical profile of averages for many aspects of church life, including congregant behaviors (how often do they really read the Bible every week?) and congregant attitudes (how strongly do they believe in salvation by grace or the authority of the Bible?).

    The Benefits of Coaching

    The Benefits of Coaching

    In this episode we focus on how churches that take the REVEAL survey can benefit from engaging with a coach to help them plan and implement changes based on their results.

    Leading Change in Troubled and Introverted Churches

    Leading Change in Troubled and Introverted Churches

    In this episode we interviewed Keith Doornbus, one of our first REVEAL clients when he was pastor of Providence Church in Holland, Michigan. Providence took the REVEAL survey three times, improving from Troubled to Average. Keith shares his perspective on using REVEAL to turnaround Troubled and Introverted churches, both as a pastor who used REVEAL to understand his own congregation and as the coach for many pastors in the Christian Reformed Church who have taken the survey.
