The Healthy Church Initiative is a process, not a program.  It takes the church through steps, led by local trained people (facilitators, coaches, and consultants) from North Texas. The Large Church Initiative of the HCI process focuses on churches with mid- to large-sized congregations. Through a combination of shared learning experiences, coaching and consultation, this process helps congregations more effectively join God in God’s mission. 

This long-range planning initiative was voted unanimously at our Charge Conference last November 2016. Phase 1 included Gloria Fowler, a Conference consultant, working with our church exclusively earlier this year as we read and discussed material pertaining to vital, growing churches.

As part of the Phase 2 process of HCI, we are asking all of our people to complete a congregational survey to provide our consultation team valuable perspectives about our church. It’s short, easy to use, and completely anonymous. Our goal is to have at least 50% of our people complete the survey, but the more the better!


Prayer is an important part of growing with God. As part of the Healthy Church Initiative, we are asking church members and guests to be in prayer for each other, our church, the community around the church, and for the transformation we seek to make FUMC Plano a simple, healthy, vibrant church family filled with disciples and making disciples of Christ in North Texas.
