PULSE

A Vitality Assessment Tool

It is our prayer that every Covenant church becomes a Healthy Missional church. By “healthy” we mean pursuing Christ. By “missional” we mean pursuing Christ’s priorities in the world. Awareness and acceptance of one’s current reality is an important step in becoming a healthy missional church. Admitting the truth is the first step toward change.

To that end, we’ve developed Pulse.

  • P rovides awareness of current reality
  • U pdates progress every two years
  • L inks the church more closely with the mission and message of Jesus
  • S uggests next steps
  • E ncourages spiritual discernment

Based on your church’s results from the Pulse assessment and various other factors, and depending on the Holy Spirit for discernment, we offer a suggestion on whether your church is Healthy Missional, Stable, Critical Moment, or At-Risk. We then provide recommendations and next steps to become a healthy missional church.

“Thank you for all your hard work. I know you were backed up with other inventories to be read. Thank you for your gracious accommodation to our time line. Our conversation this morning was extremely helpful and this process was worth so much more than any of us expected. We will continue to pray for our congregation to embrace reality and move toward even greater vitality. Thank you again to all who played a part in making this evaluative tool available to us.” – Joy Champion, Modesto Covenant Church
