At North Orange Christian Church we are committed to the mission our Lord has given us:
"To facilitate a passionate, personal relationship with Jesus Christ leading to lifelong discipleship"
But we can't do this if we don't actually talk about our spiritual life, or know where each other is in our relationship with the Lord. That's why we began the "Spiritual Health Assessments". The Spiritual Health Assessment is a discussion between one of the leaders of NOCC and a member of the church about where they are in their relationship to Jesus, and how they can grow.
This assessment has become one of the most important aspects of our church life, and we believe each person attending NOCC should have this assessment done at least once a year. The assessment usually consists of a meeting with one of the church leaders, and normally takes approximately one hour. It can take place at the church office, in a home, at Starbuck's or any other convenient location.
The discussion begins with a review of the concept of the different "chairs" at the Lords' table, representing different phases of growth in faith. We ask the person being assessed to identify where he sees himself, and where he would like to be.
We then review the "Essentials" and ask the person to rate himself on a scale of 1-10 on each item (1=non existent; 10=almost perfect). Then we discuss the strengths and areas for growth, suggesting a strategy for which growth areas should be addressed first--and how!
Most people enjoy this process and find it useful to them spiritually. We hope you do! To schedule a Spiritual Health Assessment, just contact the church office and one of the leaders will contact you to set up the appointment at (714) 998 3181.
