Waypoint staff will anonymously attend your church services then share observations and recommendations for areas to be developed or improved, especially with a view toward first-time guests. A coaching plan for implementation can be created with a Waypoint representative to help execute needed changes
One of the unique aspects of service to local congregations is the opportunity to meet with local leaders and direct them to the right resources or help them solve a critical need in their church. Included are assistance on how to hire, compensation packages, web site design, by-laws review, and elder selection. Whatever your ministry question, we are here to help.
“Things have been in high gear after our meeting. The leaders REALLY appreciated all of your input, and have already had their first meeting dissecting and rewriting our current bylaws.”

Waypoint assists churches with funds to purchase land or to make repairs or improvements to their property. To date, Waypoint has provided nearly two and a half million dollars through more than a hundred No-Interest Loans, to churches across the region.
