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 Small Church Initiative (SCI) workshop are now being accepted. Once a church's application for the SCI workshop has been accepted, the pastor will receive additional information about registering lay people for the group. Applications will be accepted until November 5, 2013.
The SCI Workshops will begin in January. The Larger Church Initative Pastor Leadershsip Development (PLD) and Lay Leadership Development (LLD) groups began in September. Applications for those groups are available in the Spring each year.
