Designed to help you evaluate and predict how receptive the existing church culture will be to a revitalization vision.

*Networks/associations will assess the network leader’s competency and readiness through the Network Leaders Readiness Assessment (NLRA) instead of the PRA and will assess network culture and receptivity using the Network Vision Receptivity Assessment (NVRA) instead of the VRA, therefore, chemistry will be discovered for networks/associations by combining the NLRA and the NVRA. Discovering readiness, receptivity, and chemistry are important first steps to beginning the revitalization process.
