Plan General Consultation

General Consultation

A General Consultation is the first step in your planning process. It serves as an opportunity for your congregational leadership to share its:

  • ministry hopes and dreams,
  • understanding of God’s calling in your congregation’s history, and
  • initial ideas behind your congregation’s building and facility.


It is a time for identifying:

  • the financial capacity of your congregation,
  • a basic time frame for completing your project, and
  • the next steps your congregation should take to prepare your facility to help you reach your ministry goals.

Who Should Attend

  • Representative leaders of your congregation, including those with responsibility for property, finances, and ministry, and
  • A Disciples Church Extension Fund advisor

Schedule the Consultation

Schedule your consultation as early in the project planning process as possible. We can be most helpful when scheduled:

  • As soon as your congregation’s official board believes that a building program is necessary
  • Prior to the creation of the necessary organization.


To schedule a General Consultation, your congregation’s board should take formal action inviting Disciples Church Extension Fund to send an advisor for a consultation. One of your congregational officers should review and complete the Request for General Consultation Information Sheet, and submit the form to Disciples Church Extension Fund.

A Disciples Church Extension Fund advisor will contact your congregation to schedule the consultation. Visits normally happen within 90 days after you submit your request.

Contact to find out how your space can serve your congregation’s ministries.
