The Healthy Church Initiative (HCI) was formed to help revitalize churches and aid them in fulfilling The Great Commission. Through a combination of continuous learning, coaching and consultation, this process helps congregations more effectively join God in God’s mission. After having successfully implemented this process in the Missouri Annual Conference for several years, we are bringing this process of transformation to the Central Texas Conference.
Two distinct initiatives within HCI have been designed to address the unique needs of varying sized churches:

Applications to join a Pastoral Leadership Development (PLD) group for the Larger Church Initiative are now being accepted. Once a pastor's application for the PLD group has been accepted he/she will receive additional information about registering laity for the Lay Leadership Development (LLD) group. Applications will be accepted until June 14.
The LCI PLD and LLD continous learning groups begin each September. The SCI groups begin in January. Applications for those groups are available in the Summer each year.
