Telling the Truth About Congregational Vitality

Veritas is a workshop designed for pastors, chairpersons, and other key leaders in the church. We will discover together the marks of a healthy missional church and the four types of established churches in the Covenant. We will then look at next steps.

The Veritas workshop is a great way to get the conversation going and/or to take it to the next level. The purpose of the workshop is to remind people that God is in the resurrection business and that he is pulling for you and your church to overcome.

Veritas is taught by John Wenrich, director of congregational vitality, and by members of the Veritas Teaching Team: Steve Armfield, Brent Thompson, Kreig Gammelgard, Alan Forsman, Peyton Johnson, Gerald Froese, Jon Kramka, Don Robinson, Peter Sjoblom, Alex Gee, and allan Serrano.

“In my thirty-five plus years of ministry, Veritas is the single most important strategy to come down the road. Churches are spending time ‘goal setting, dreaming, and scheming’ without taking a hard look at themselves, i.e. discovering what kind of church they are and what that means about their decision-making process and what needs to take place. I’ve participated in a number of these (Covenant) programs and while seeing value in them, for the most part, have always been left with a church unable to get off the mark because it hasn’t understood who it is.” – Covenant pastor
