In advance of a strong Total Stewardship effort, ISPD is often invited to work with a parish and assess their Development/Stewardship efforts. We provide a binder of questions for parish leaders to answer, personally interview 25-30 selected people, gather targeted materials, speak with parish leaders and those working with the Development/Stewardship processes, and then present a multi-page report that indicates what is working well, what can be improved, and where we recommend the parish should go in the next 30-60-90 days and beyond. This Assessment is often the catalyst for organizational change into a vibrant and meaningful Total Stewardship effort.
