CMD Ministry Development Workshop Strategic Planning

Why Strategic Planning?

Strategic Planning is a systematic process involving people to envision (or re-envision) a desired future orientation and then determining the best way to achieve that using the resources we have available.

For the church, strategic planning involves first understanding God’s great plan for the world and then developing a plan that is faithful to this within the context God has put you in.

CMD’s recent psychometric testing of Sydney pastors indicates that we have a preference for planning but not for implementation. This might suggest that we need to make extra effort in planning to include others in the planning process (to establish a “shared vision”) and to simplify or rationalise our chosen plans to make them more achievable as we implement.

This half day session focusses on assisting church workers to consider the reasons why we plan and then the key steps in the planning process. We wish to equip attendees to be able to understand and lead key elements of a planning process in the church environment. 

Our Objective

The objective from this half day training is for you to:

Build an understanding of the Strategic Process
