WHO BENEFITS FROM THIS CONSULTATION?

WHAT DOES THIS PROCESS COST?

The only cost to the local church for consultation itself is providing hotel lodging and meals for the consultation team members. Indiana Ministries covers the rest of the consultation expenses out of its budget. The actual cost for a weekend consultation like this with only one consultant is around $7,000 – 7,500, so this is no small investment on the part of Indiana Ministries. There is a cost to the church if it chooses to enter into a covenant/coaching relationship with Indiana Ministries for recommendation implementation.
