Readiness 360 is one of the most powerful tools that Epicenter Group leaders and others can use to discern the core internal dynamics within a church. It has become a key process of how we audit what's going on with a church prior to consulting and coaching. The external metrics can tell you something of what is going on in a church - but Readiness 360 is like an MRI that allows you to view deeply within a church system and culture to discover the core strengths and challenges. Readiness 360 has been developed recently by Paul Nixon and Christie Latona.
Readiness for What?
Readiness 360 measures how ready a church is to create new ministry or to plant new faith communities in order to reach new people. Once we understand the readiness, we can work in concrete ways to get a church to a place where new initiatives are much more likely to succeed and thrive.
What does it measure?
Readiness360 looks at four drivers, as revealed and defined by American churches that reproduce ministry readily: (1) spiritual intensity, (2) cultural openness, (3) missional alignment and (4) dynamic relationships.
How does it measure these?
A church receives a link whereby as many people as they wish are able to take a survey of approximately 80 questions, assessing their individual attitudes, experiences and values related to the above drivers. Every piece of data entered on every survey flows into the report that comes back to the local church.
How can I find out more?
Go to www.readiness360.org. There you will discover more about this powerful tool. For clusters of churches or judicatory regions that go together on a Readiness 360 contract, training days are offered for conference and local church leaders. For clusters of churches that wish to take Readiness 360 at the beginning of an intentional effort to grow in ministry effectiveness, Epicenter Group is happy to organize learning clusters, so as to guide and coach leaders in strengthening their church's readiness for risk-taking and world-changing ministry initiatives.
