The importance of discernment is rising in our society and for our churches. We know better than ever that people often do not see issues clearly and are easily misled by many voices.
When your church chooses evidence-based discernment there is provided a way to distinguish the primary from the secondary, the essential from the indifferent, and the permanent from the transient. And, yes, it means distinguishing between the good and the better, and even between the better and the best.
Churches that gain evidence for discernment are better positioned to make better decisions, based on the voices of all constituents. But not only a collection of voices, evidence-based discernment can uncover the deeper realities of a church, such as theological perspective, flexibility, satisfaction and energy levels.
Discernment serves as a catalyst for congregational development. Knowing the evidence and tying it to keen understanding through services of a trained interpreter, can make all the difference when attempting change or improving climate.
