FaithX Strategic Missional Services now offers two resources to explore missional opportunities at the local community level. The first is a Neighborhood Missional Intelligence Report. The second is a Neighborhood Missional Intelligence Assessment.
Think of the difference between the Report and the Assessment as the difference between taking a “selfie” and sitting for a portrait, except the subject is not you but your community and both are much more detailed than you might expect.
The Neighborhood Missional Intelligence Assessment is a 4-hour consultation (typically video-based) designed to help congregational leadership identify and understand missional opportunities in the neighborhoods surrounding their congregation. It employs a live and interactive version of the Neighborhood Missional Intelligence Report (a 2-page infographic report that we provide free in interactive Dynamic HTML (format) and the interactive, online demographic and lifestyle mapping capabilities of MapDash for Faith Communities.
The Neighborhood Missional Intelligence Assessment takes place in four steps:
- Preparation of a live Neighborhood Missional Intelligence Report for your congregation or location.
- A one-hour preview meeting with the top clergy and lay leader of the congregation, to give them a preview of the Report and learn from them any particular questions the congregation is trying to answer about its neighborhoods.
- A two-hour presentation and facilitated discussion with the key leaders and leadership groups of the congregation, to dig more deeply into the demographic data behind the Report, identifying potential missional opportunities and resources for engaging them.
- A one-hour review meeting with the above clergy and lay leader, to explore potential next steps.
(half in advance, remainder upon completion)
(Those who elect to proceed with the full Neighborhood Missional Assessment or other consultative program will receive a full NMIR in Dynamic HTML (interactive) format, with 40 demographics for multiple DriveTimes, WalkTimes, and/or locations, and access to extensive underlying data.)
