What the Inventory is

ministry planning

The Elemental Churches Inventory is a revolutionary web-based assessment system that combines individual and team learning through online tools and videos with sage coaching. It not only gives a focused snapshot of where you are, but provides a comprehensive report with recommended action steps that can be turned into your strategic plan. It’s a roadmap that's based on your own uploaded reports, assessments, and surveys as you and your team work through the personal and group exercises.

What it does

help for churches

The Elemental Churches Inventory guides your leadership team through a multi-faceted review of strengths and opportunities in four vital elements of your church’s life: Integrity (systems, processes, infrastructure), Passion (commitment to the mission), Servanthood (outward-focus), and Imagination (innovation, openness to change) using the Earth, Fire, Water, and Air metaphor. And because of its unique web-based approach, it’s a third of the cost of typical consulting!

No kidding.

We believe that with the right tools, pastors can take their staff and key volunteers through a team-based, self-guided organizational-development curriculum that is transformational. The Elemental Churches Field Guide takes your leadership team through a thorough online inventory of church health in dialogue with us. Combined with our interactive analysis, church leaders receive an in-depth report complete with recommendations and action steps.

Take the FREE personal Leadership Assessment here!


What's your primary element?—Are you a Passion|Fire leader…or do you lean toward Imagination|Air? Would you see yourself primarily in the Integrity|Earth value…or flowing strong in Servanthood|Water? Take this free assessment and get your results immediately. Your highest total is your dominant elemental leadership strength. Typically, you’ll assess with 2-3 similarly scored elements and one that is obviously lower, which is often your blind spot when it comes situational leadership. More explanation follows the assessment, taken from the book Elemental Leaders: Four Essentials Every Leader Needs…And Every Church Must Have.


The online assessment will take about 15 minutes.
