The challenges a church and its pastoral staff face in transition are numerous. An outside source of encouragement and guidance often makes the difference between success and failure. When you engage in a formal transition support agreement with TOUCH Outreach, you will receive a commitment from us to help you achieve the following:
To achieve these objectives, you will receive:
Telephone support: Twice a month, you will receive a scheduled phone call to discuss progress and help you make plans for the next step. Often, these calls are scheduled in the evening when the implementation team meets to maximize participation.
Email support: During the contracted agreement, you will receive unlimited email support with a same-day response time.
On-site support: For each twelve months of support, we provide one day of on-site training for staff, leaders and/or members. Typically, time with the implementation team or pastoral staff is fit into these days to maximize the on-site support. (Costs for travel and lodging are not included in the basic agreement. Additional on-site support can be arranged at a substantial discount off our $1,000 ~ $1,500 published day rates for training and consulting.)
Off-site support: For each twelve months of support, we provide one day of off-site training in the TOUCH offices in Houston. Pastors find that taking leaders away for a day to tackle tough issues or create a new plan of action is more effective than a local meeting. Plus, an outside facilitator allows the pastor to focus as a team member and not be concerned with facilitation.
Resource Discounts: Included in this agreement is an additional 10% off the final cost of all printed resources purchased through TOUCH Outreach Ministries.
Duration: The minimum support agreement is six months. Typically churches utilize this coaching process for the first 12 - 24 months of transition.
Our Exclusive Money-Back Guarantee: Every 90 days, you will be invited to evaluate the support you have received. If you are not completely satisfied, TOUCH will cheerfully refund your support fees for the previous 90 day period.
Fees: The cost of transition support varies based on the size of your church. Contact us for details.
