Church Health Assessment Tool

About the Assessment Tool

The Vital Signs Church Health Assessment Tool was developed for Missouri Baptist Churches to use in determining what they are doing well and areas where they could be doing better.

The video below will help to explain how the Assessment Tool is designed and how it works. We encourage you to watch it. If you have questions about the Assessment Tool or how it can be used in your church or association, please feel free to contact us.

The Assessment Tool is available for anyone to use. Directors of Missions are encouraged to use it in an associational Health Clinic. Pastors are encouraged to use it with their key leaders. Members of the MBC Church Ministries Staff are also available to come and lead a clinic for an association or church as their schedules permit.

Church Health Consultants

To request an MBC Staff member to lead a clinic, contact Mark Donnell, Sunday School Specialist at 1-800-736-6227 ext. 413, Feel free to download the Assessment Pages and make as many copies as you need. If you have questions, please give us a call. We will be glad to help.


As part of the follow-up effort for churches that use the Assessment Tool, we have trained a number of Church Health Consultants across the state who can be assigned to a church for a small fee. These consultants will walk along with a church for a period of six to twelve months to provide help and resources for accomplishing the growth goals discovered during the health assessment. Contact us for more details about having a Church Health Consultant assigned.

It is our desire to assist and encourage you and your church leadership as you seek to become the vibrant body of Christ that will continue to advance our Lord’s Kingdom in the community where He has placed you.
