Viability Assessment

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.

To get a sense of the assessment, please refer to the first part, the Viability Assessment introduction, which gives an idea of the overall process.

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.

For more information about the Viability Assessment and cost, please contact EDGE.
