There are times when a congregation prefers to receive the New Beginnings service outside of a cluster of congregations. Sometimes a church finds itself in a pressing financial situation and needs more immediate guidance from a New Beginnings assessment. In these instances, the church can elect a customized New Beginnings service. This includes the same elements of the traditional New Beginnings Assessment Service, but offers more flexibility to adapt the schedule and delivery of the service for one particular congregation. Because the travel costs are not shared, the fee for the customized service is higher.
The current fee for the customized New Beginnings service is $3,800. (This fee is subsidized by Hope Partnership donors committed to the value of this service.) Service fees help pay for consultant time and travel, multiple copies of the final report and all training materials.
When a church elects the customized New Beginnings assessment, the report is presented to the leaders of the single church. If desired, this presentation can involve more leaders and be combined with training over two consecutive weeknights. All events are hosted at the church.
