Total Church System (TCS) TrainingIntegrating the Church Vitality Survey (CVS) with the Total Church Diagram (TCD).
Learn how the Holy Spirit can use the Church Vitality Survey (CVS) to inspire and encourage churches to obey the Lord Jesus Christ so He can lead them to greater accomplishments for the glory of God. Understand the simple ideas Jesus and the apostles used to launch the churches that “turned the world upside down”.
They used the human body to show how the church is a living interactive organizational body that must work together in order to grow by making the disciples Jesus commanded in the Great Commission (Matthew 28: 18 -20). We call this interactive organizational body the Total Church System (TCS). The two major subsystems of the TCS are:
The Church Vitality Survey (CVS)
The CVS enables us under the prompting of the Holy Spirit to assess the health and vitality of the church body just as a blood test helps doctors assess the health and vitality of the human body. We will discuss this below in Unit 1.
The Total Church Diagram (TCD)
The TCD enables us to relate each question on the Church Vitality Survey (CVS) to specific areas of ministry within the local church. We will discuss this below in Unit 2.
We introduce the CVS in “Unit 1 – Journey to Patmos to Learn About the Church Vitality Survey”. Next, “Unit 2 – The Standard Report” gives a brief overview of the reports that are available from the CVS. This will help you appreciate “Unit 3 – Return to Patmos…” to learn How the CVS and the TCD work together to give you a deeper understanding of the Total Church System (TCS). You may want to print or refer to the “Total Church System Instruction Manual” and the 5 minute video on the Church Vitality Survey to gain a deeper understanding.
