Core Consulting Process
A holistic approach for doing ministry well
We use a proprietary consulting process called Ministry Edge. It is a 4 part process that focuses on the whole organization and how to help it be great on both the inside and outside.
Mission involves a deep dive into the organization’s heartbeat. This involves vision, mission, values, and culture - a rediscovery of God’s original calling. Mission allows for clarity and ownership, first by the leader, then everyone else.
Model is how the organization accomplishes its mission, primarily through strategy, structure and people. We assess the plan and the team and align the structure to allow them to achieve their key objectives and let their unique DNA shine through.
Method is how the organization accomplishes its work. We ask the question — “is the work we're doing right now the same as the vision and mission that we have set out for this organization?” If the answer is no, realignment is needed.
Mission, Model, Method — once there is clarity and alignment in these, only then can we look at how this is communicated. This is the Message, component four, and this is where we use all our creative skills to tell the story.
The alignment of Mission, Model, Method, and Message is where the integrity of a ministry can be seen, shared, and celebrated. We can tell their story with excitement and integrity since we know the message we are delivering is true.
