VCI Important Dates

Consultation Weekend
August 2 - 4, 2019

One of the biggest catalysts of the VCI process is called the Consultation weekend. It involves a consultation team of 4-6 clergy and lay consultants coming to learn more about our church through a series of discussions, workshops, and interviews over a Friday/Saturday.  The team interviews 8-10 leaders and staff members on Friday and conducts workshops and focus groups to get more insight into the church’s past, present, and future. These meetings yield a VCI Report that is customized to our church and read to the congregation that Sunday. Members are given a printed copy to review prior to a follow-up meeting where the church will vote whether or not to adopt the “prescriptions” that the consultation team has provided to help your church go from good to great.

There will be no questions taken at this time about the report. Copies of the report will be available Sunday morning and will be posted on the website for review shortly after the service.
