Institute of Church Development

Institute of Church Development (ICD)

Church is a living organism comprised of many people. This leads to several questions. How to influence individuals in a wise way?  How to discover outcomes that can result in bringing people closer to God?  How to organize the activities and life of the church?  What to do to help the church grow and develop? 

In the Institute of Church Development (ICD) we help find answers to these types of questions.  In order to do that we use various tools – we identify strengths and weaknesses, strengthen the vision and build a strategy.  At the same time we focus on developing practical leadership skills like problem solving, managing teams of people and fundraising.  All of these are being offered so that the whole church can grow. 

We offer:

  • Leadership training:
    • Private life and ministry,
    • Church/ministry management,
    • Practical tools.
  • Counselling/Consulting:
    • Problem solving,
    • Defining goals,
