LEAD’s 7 Step Guide for Setting Annual Goals – with the help of God
Two versions are available: one for congregational goal setting and one specifically designed for setting faith formation goals.
- Are you looking for ways to do more than what you have been doing?
- Do you sometimes feel like your congregation is building the road as you drive on it?
- Would strengthening your infrastructure and alignment reduce speed-bumps along your way?
Designed for pastors and church leaders or faith formation ministry teams to use during a leadership / council / staff retreat (preferably overnight but one long day is possible), the Annual Roadmap will help churches develop a plan for joining God in mission and moving the congregation forward.
A plan with up to 6 goals that are aligned around shared annual values, focused on identified stakeholders, and include doable next steps. The package includes a poster for you to print and display as a reminder of the Annual Roadmap goals you set.
This is not a strategic planning process, but it is perfect if your congregation is gearing up for one, wants to prepare for a more intentional LEAD Process, is wanting to set strategic goals for faith formation, or has taken the Congregational Vitality Survey as part of your annual report and is asking, so now what?
Regardless of where your congregation or faith formation ministry is right now, making an Annual Roadmap is as important as developing your own personal annual goals. Each requires an awareness of the realities of your life / your congregation’s life and your larger commitment to learning because you want to be a better person / congregation.
