Strategic Planning


Pastors long to see an entire church focused on it’s mission, and unified about how to achieve it.  But apart from the work of preaching, few seminaries provide training for how to nurture this in a church.  The Thrive process helps pastors focus on their own growth as a leader, and also on working with lay leaders to articulate a future vision/plan for their church.  Support is provided via 12 meetings with a small group of other pastors who are walking the same path.   In addition, an experienced “mentoring pastor” meets with the group each month.

Contact the CBA office or email for more details.

Church Statistical Review/History

Churches that have regularly submitted an annual report may access data via the GBC.  Or, if preferred, CBA can access these same statistical reports for use in evaluation/planning.   Contact to request statistics in a specific format or for a specific time frame.
