The viability assessment is a tool that congregations use to analyze and assess financial giving trends and volunteer capacity within the ministry.
The assessment is in three parts.
The first part helps to get a history and background of the congregation, an understanding of the current mission and ministry or identity of the congregation, and finally look at the next steps of the process of working with EDGE.
The second part will gather data on a variety of topics, including:
- Volunteer resources
- Changes in volunteer positions
- Congregational demographics
- Facility features
- Building condition
- Current situation
- Financial details
- Financial giving patterns
- Mission & Service givings
- Budget breakdown
- Investment / trust funds
The third part of the assessment asks questions to initiate conversation and can be helpful for the ministry wishing to facilitate the assessment themselves.
The second and third parts of the assessment have a fee attached, and EDGE can provide facilitation and a written analysis if requested.
