What Is It?

The Mystery Guest consultation for medium to smaller attendance churches gives you first-hand insight into how outsiders experience your church. Mystery guests visit your church and complete observation surveys, which are compiled into an 80-page Assessment Report with recommended training and suggested action steps.

Designed to be affordable and effective for the medium to smaller attendance congregation.

How Does It Work

  • The church contacts Dynamic Church Ministries for an initial consultation call. Request this call by submitting the response form at the bottom of this page.

  • At the conclusion of all visits by the client church's Mystery guests, DCM will produce an 80-page Consultant's Assessment Report, detailing ratings, results and responses. The report will include charts and graphs, which can be used by the client church for other presentations to leaders or members.
  • DCM will provide a 1-hour debrief consultation meeting to review the final report and recommendations for training and suggested action steps.
