One important component in becoming a vibrant and healthy congregation involves having a shared sense of direction. A strategic plan answers the question, “In what new and different ways will we touch lives in the coming 3 to 5 years?” A short list of answers to this question, supported by key leaders and a strong majority of active members, will guide and enliven everything from program planning, and worship to decisions about staffing, buildings, budgets,and community outreach.
Consider beginning a process of developing a shared sense of direction by gaining evidence about your church. The Church Assessment Tool* (CAT) offers the best approach to giving equal voice to all your people for the purpose of gaining evidence-based discernment. When you do you’ll make better decisions, in less time and with more confidence.
