“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win” ― Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Wow. This quote so aptly applies to what Christ has done for us on the cross! What a privilege to be serving on the side of victory! It (the quote) also serves as a reminder that sometimes the best way to fulfill a vision is to map out a strategy for getting there before we ever begin. That’s what I want to talk about in this post.
Last year Elim Fellowship produced a professional recording of my one day workshop entitled, “Strategic Planning for the Local Church”. In this workshop I tackle the following topics:
- How to build and maintain a cohesive strategic planning team.
- How to clarify your ministry’s DNA (Mission, Vision, Values).
- How to apply the ‘Strategic Process’ to any challenge your church faces.
- How to roll out a strategic plan to your constituents.
At the time of this teaching, my goal was to impart to my listeners everything I’ve learned about Strategic Planning. I have received, by far, more positive feedback from this material than any other teaching to date. One pastor told me he requires all new elders and key staff to review this workshop as part of their church leadership requirement. Another pastor mentioned to me the other day that his leadership team has already walked through the workshop twice since purchasing the DVD set – and they attended the workshop in person!
All said, I’d like to invite you to consider purchasing a copy of this workshop for your church or ministry as well. I really do believe it can make a big difference in how you approach and think about ministry. Cost for the workshop is $99.00. It is available at my online store or you may purchase you’re copy by clicking ‘Buy now’ below. Blessings!
