What if your next big step toward impact and effectiveness has been under your leadership team's nose all along?

The Elemental Churches Inventory is a revolutionary web-based assessment system that combines individual and team learning through online tools and videos with sage coaching. It not only gives a focused snapshot of where you are, but provides a comprehensive report with recommended action steps that can be turned into your strategic plan. It’s a roadmap that's based on your own uploaded reports, assessments, and surveys as you and your team work through the personal and group exercises.


The Elemental Churches Inventory

The Elemental Churches Inventory guides your leadership team through a multi-faceted review of strengths and opportunities in four vital elements of your church’s life: Integrity (systems, processes, infrastructure), Passion (commitment to the mission), Servanthood (outward-focus), and Imagination (innovation, openness to change) using the Earth, Fire, Water, and Air metaphor. And because of its unique web-based approach, it’s a third of the cost of typical consulting!

Earth / Integrity


Build solid systems and processes.

Fire / Passion


Inspire passionate commitment for the mission of the church.

Water / Servanthood


Form a deep connection to the needs of your surrounding community.

Air / Imagination


Foster creative openness to the future and innovative ministry.


The complete Elemental Churches Inventory is seriously affordable. No kidding.

We believe that with the right tools, pastors can take their staff and key volunteers through a team-based, self-guided organizational-development curriculum that is transformational. The Elemental Churches Inventory guides leadership teams through a thorough online inventory of church health in dialogue with us. Combined with our interactive analysis, church leaders receive an in-depth report complete with recommendations and action steps.

From the beginning, our dream has been to provide high quality coaching/consulting at a price the average church can afford. Our mission is simple: To help your church grow as healthy and effective as God intends.

Start Your Personal Assessment

What's your primary element?—Are you a Fire|Passion leader…or do you lean toward Air|Imagination? Would you see yourself primarily in the Water|Servanthood value…or flowing strong in Earth|Integrity? Take this free assessment and get your results immediately. Your highest total is your dominant elemental leadership strength. Typically, you’ll assess with 2-3 similarly scored elements and one that is obviously lower, which is often your blind spot when it comes situational leadership. More explanation follows the assessment, taken from the book Elemental Leaders: Four Essentials Every Leader Needs…And Every Church Must Have.

This is a comprehensive assessment and will take about 15 minutes.
