2017 CHAT Coach Certification: MA
In this one-day training, you will discover a powerful,
church health model and leave as a Certified CHAT Coach (CHAT stands for
Church Health Assessment Tool)
. You will be trained in the Ten Traits of a Healthy Church which CHAT uses as a biblical, principle-based measurement grid in assessing the health of a local church. These Ten Traits blend together the Great Commandment (love God), the Second Great Commandment (love one another), and the Great Commission (evangelism & discipleship). You'll also be educated in the full functionality of the CHAT Survey and how to customize its powerful, but user-friendly design in coaching/consulting with a church to make them as healthy and effective as they can be.
Lunch is included. Attendees are responsible for their own transportation and lodging. Each registrant will receive a FREE copy of
Becoming a Health Church
at the training.

"As a new district superintendent tasked with oversight of 66 churches, I have been on the lookout for a church assessment tool since called to this new ministry. Grabbed one our lead pastors and the two of us attended the Colorado Springs CHAT training. I was impressed with the content and simplicity of the one-day training. Most impacting for me was the time allowed to ask questions and the opportunity to dialogue with the coaches, Rick and Steve. Our first church is preparing to begin the survey….can’t wait to walk with them through the results."
-- Rob Storey, District Superintendent, MidAmerica District of the C&MA
"Learning the basis and principles of the CHAT tool from the lips of Steve Macchia and Rick Anderson was highly profitable. I encourage any church health specialists to avail themselves of this training."
-- Dr. Tom Harris, Executive Director, Interim Pastoral Ministries
"The CHAT Coach Certification and the tool itself provide an invaluable foundation for reaching next- level effectiveness in the local church. CHAT opens a non-threatening conversation within the congregation and provides the right information to leadership as they determine a pathway forward. I have used it and recommend it highly!"
-- Tom Flanders, New England District, Christian and Ministry Alliance
"What a challenging and stimulating process of looking at the health of your congregation. We can never take the next step in fulfilling God's vision for the church until we can assess our current reality. CHAT equips leaders to enable their congregations to move off dead center and into God's future. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve God and affect the life of the church through my CHAT training."
-- Dr. Chuck Pullins, United Methodist Temple Beckley, WV
