Church Innovations welcomes you to Church FutureFinder, our tool for
congregational discovery. Whether you are a seminary student, an ordained or
lay congregational leader, a consultant, a researcher or an interested
passer-by, we think you'll find you'll find CFF useful in helping discover just
what God is up to in your congregation.
Have you ever wondered what your congregation's coffee hour has to do with the
supermarket down the street? What its stained glass windows have to do with the
single parent families near the church? Ever wonder who the new people in your
community are? Or how they see your church? Or if they see your church? Come
in, fill in some blanks, and find out! We hope you are also willing to ask some
questions about your congregation's future, indeed, to open yourself to the
possibility that God has a preferred future for your congregation.
Together with members of your congregation and your community, you might
discern that future. Initially the blanks will simply look like boxes to put
numbers into and forms to fill out. And they are. However, when you include
these ordinary numbers and answers within dwelling in the Word and reflecting
on God's mission in your neighborhood, you are engaging in spiritual
discernment. You are narrating these numbers within the story of God's movement
in your community. You move beyond numbers and answers to accountability for
people and an account of your place in God's mission, past, present, and
future. Hence the name: Church FutureFinder.
