An effective long-range plan is more about ministry—not a drawing or design. The needs of ministry drive everything else. Our planning experience captures the insight of key leaders in your ministry, and works through the following tasks:
· A realistic assessment of your current ministry efforts
· A primary direction for your future ministry activities
· An evaluation of your ministry’s relationship to 12 key characteristics
· A determination of the essential “next steps”
The product of this experience is a set of objectives that guide congregations through fundraising, design, and construction activities. Just as often, a long-range plan points to other priorities, such as staffing, budgeting, and organizational adjustments. Whatever the result, our long-range planning services have a record of overwhelming acceptance by church leaders and members.
