Church Missions Coaching

Like any good coach, a church missions coach is someone who helps the church's team.
UNDERSTAND THEIR PURPOSE - The Sixteen:Fifteen coach comes alongside the church for the duration of the coaching process. We assess their current situation and help understand their purpose.
SET CLEAR GOALS - We work with the church leadership, acting as a guide through the 3D Process (Discover, Design, Deploy) to develop a solid game plan for success.
TRAIN AND PREPARE - The dedicated coach not only mentors and trains the church to implement and execute their plan, but is available and accessible to walk with the church throughout the entire process… encouraging, supporting, and advising.
ASSESS AND REPEAT - We make mid-game corrections as needed then we watch and assess the outcome and repeat the whole process as needed. Our coaches consider it a privilege to join the church in taking Christ to the nations.

We explore seven keys to help churches and missions leaders cultivate a vibrant missions culture, unlocking the church’s potential to reach the nations.
For two decades, Sixteen:Fifteen has coached countless churches across the United States helping them deepen and strengthen their global missions engagement. After evaluating our most effective and fruitful churches, we found certain commonalities that are evidenced in Scripture. We have collected data, experiences, and wisdom from these churches, creating two interactive options that will help your church develop a personalized plan, owned by church and missions leaders, to cultivate a vibrant missions culture to engage the nations more effectively.
The workshop includes noted speakers, pastors, missions thinkers, and authors. Break-out sessions are strategically scheduled to help churches dig deeper so they can apply biblically-based concepts within their church.

The M.A.C. is a two-day, highly interactive workshop with dynamic teaching and sessions that helps organizations develop deeper and more strategic partnerships with the local church.
We help organizations consider questions like:
- How do churches perceive our organization?
- How does our organization perceive churches?
- Are we doing missions/mobilization “for” churches or “with” churches? And does it matter?
- Are we cultivating a pro-church culture?
- Is it possible to connect what we do best to what churches do best?
- Does our organization really know the Church in North America?
Sessions are interactive and built for organizations to have time to process the information and apply to their current realities.
Organizations learn from other organizations from across the country during open discussions and plenty of networking time.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
