Strategic planning is challenging but it doesn’t have to be complicated. When done well, strategic planning can provide an opportunity to hear numerous voices in your congregation and use that input to determine your future path.
In this fast-paced, upbeat workshop, you will learn about an innovative strategic planning process that congregations of all sizes can successfully complete and implement. This luncheon workshop is a hands-on experience, which prepares you to take what you’ve learned back to your congregation to begin the process of planning.
Led by June Miller, a nonprofit consultant with years of experience, this workshop provides fresh ideas and a better understanding of what it means to think and plan strategically. Miller explores the tools of strategic planning, helping you create a manageable and easy-to-implement plan.
You will leave with:
- a clear understanding of terms used in strategic planning.
- an easy-to-use, seven-step framework for planning that is effective for all teams and organizations, regardless of mission or size.
- an understanding of how to use what you’ve learned to help create a plan for your congregation or team.
- a sense of confidence in the ability of your congregation or team to successfully plan for the future.
