What is Church Recalibration?


RECALIBRATION is the ongoing process for churches and leadership to adapt and change its METHODS as it seeks to fill the unchanging MISSION of Christ in the community and the world.  This is accomplished through:


  • Leadership Training & Coaching
  • Team Development & Equipping
  • Missional Resourcing & Networking


From the Acts 2 Journey, to Church Consultation, Traditional Education or Leadership Coaching/Mentoring we are here to help you navigate what RECALIBRATION looks like for you and your church.

Church Consultation

What are Church Consultations?

The PennDel Ministry Network is currently in the process of developing consultants in our Network that will be available for churches by request of their pastor.  These trained consultants will work from a fee-based system and offer the following:

  • Initial Consult:  Following a church application which will provide an overview snapshot of the church, the trained consultant will travel to your location, meeting individually with pastors and key leaders in the congregation on a Saturday.  They will remain for the Sunday morning (or weekend) service(s) as a silent observer of the service, systems, and overall operations.  They will also observe the church facilities.  The consultant will then provide a report to the lead pastor for their consideration, reporting on strengths, weakness, critical-success factors, suggested changes, etc…  At this level of consult, the pastor will choose how to proceed. (Fees TBD)
  • Implementation Consult:  Following the Initial Consult, pastors/churches can contract directly with the consultant typically from 6-12 months to assist and coach through the change-process as outline in the Consult Report.  (Fees TBD)
  • Training Consult:  Consultants are available to conduct specific training for your team on a variety of subject and topics.  For a list of our consultant, their specialty or to contact them directly, click on the button below! (Fees TBD)
