201 Details


Level 201 utilizes the 160 question “Church Health Report” (CHR), by CHURCH ANSWERS that examines 6 key areas of church health:

  • Worship                                survey001
  • Fellowship
  • Prayer
  • Ministry
  • Evangelism
  • Discipleship
  • + Beliefs

Used by over 1200 congregations, the Church Health Report determines the perceived level of church health, provides responses to each question, and suggests ways to improve. At the end of the process, your church leadership will receive a 40-page final report and overall score, and suggestions to improve areas of strength and weakness. (Deeper levels of analysis and actions plans are available in Level 301 and 401 consultations.)

The process typically looks like this:

  1. Your consultant will connect with your church leadership to explain the Church Health Report.
  2. Your consultant will provide your congregation with a link to the Church Health Report survey.
  3. Your people will complete and submit the online survey (via the Church Health Report website), within one week.
  4. Your consultant, along with the Church Answers team, will process the results. 
  5. Your consultant will email the CHR Results Packet to your pastor or designated leaders.

It’s that simple.


  • Attendance plateaus or declines
  • Pastoral leadership has changed
  • New program or ministry planned
  • Mix or composition of attendees changes
  • Growth barriers
  • Community around church changes
  • Planning to build on strengths or improve weaknesses


Consultant fees for Level 201 are $1000 + cost of Church Health Report. 

Church leaders choose a sampling of the church membership to complete the 15-20 minute Church Health Report survey. A 45-survey package through Church Answers is $300 for the basic package (45 surveys, 45 answer sheets, and a 40 page report). Additional surveys range from $1 – $2, depending on quantity. Church Answers suggests the minimum number of attendees that need to be surveyed is:

No. in Attendance No. of Surveys Required
<100 30
100-200 35
201-300 45
301-400 60
400+ 15% of worship attendance


Typically, no on-site visit is required for a Level 2 consultation. E-mail, phone and/or Skype communication is usually sufficient.
