Strategic Planning for a Fantastic Fall

Create momentum this fall by designing it now

“Wow, Pastor, this fall has been the best one we have had in years. Great job!”

Words every pastor wants and needs to hear. Come December, I want you to be the recipient of comments like that one.

In order for it to happen you need to start now with your planning and it must be strategic and intentional.

I want to help your church be more effective and reach more people this fall, so I am inviting you to take a bold step and join a pastor’s group. You will embark on a strategic planning journey which will give you the necessary tools to make your fall programs a huge success.

During my 40-years of ministry, I have known the disappointment of failing to plan or having a plan and failing to follow it. I have also delighted in the joy of a successful season of ministry. I have learned in order to have a fabulous fall, I had to plan for it in the summer.

In this 100-day journey, you’ll accomplish the following:

  • Set a one-year SMART goal.
  • Create the Fall plan to move you towards that goal.
  • Understand the necessary steps to make your fall plan successful.
  • Break each step into smaller steps with “next step sections” attached.
  • Plan for obstacles and how to overcome them.

You will enjoy these benefits by signing up today.
