Description Excerpts Free Download
Our Mission provides a four-step process for discovering God's call for your congregation. The mission of the church is the same at all times and in all ages, but takes shape in different ways from one congregation to another. This book assists congregations in writing a mission statement, establishing goals, and creating action plans to carry out those goals.

The four strategic planning steps to help your congregation fulfill its mission:
  • STOP to pray and discern if your congregation is fulfilling the will of God
  • LOOK at God's word to make sure it is at the heart of your mission
  • LISTEN to the mission mandate of Christ to establish goals for the congregation
  • GO to implement your action plans with confidence and hope in God's blessings.
This book can be used by pastors and congregational leaders for strategic planning and effective management. See Excerpts for reproducible tools that can be downloaded and customized.
