This study researched the effect of teaching about church health on the awareness, beliefs, and goals of congregational leaders. Teaching was conducted at a one-day workshop and focused on viewing church health through the lenses of God's mission, systems theory perspectives related to mission, and revitalization principles interpreted through God's mission for the church. Observations and interviews assessed how participants were impacted. Findings revealed changes in awareness, beliefs, and goals in participants, and that participants would benefit from further study and discussion in church health issues.
