Our ability to minister is directly impacted by the viability of the organisation we represent. Highly successful ministries have taken time to build infrastructure to support the fulfillment of mission. Our vision for impact will be proportional to how effective we are in building on a firm foundation sufficient to withstand the storms of change. Sessions in this Network are designed to provide practical steps, tools, and resources to enable your organisation to grow and flourish.
Each session will be a "working session" with workbooks on how to develop each idea.
Mission and Ministry (2 Sessions)
Every organisation needs to have a clear understanding of its reason for existence. This clarity of purpose comes when an organisation understands its mission. Mission drives every aspect of what is done within an organisation; nothing should be considered part of the organisation that doesn’t make critical contribution to the fulfillment of the organisation’s mission.
Funding Your Vision (2 Sessions)
Many people think that fundraising is a matter of sales or manipulation. In contrast, Jerry Twombly teaches that a biblical approach to fundraising is the result of building a healthy and biblical, God-honouring organisation. What are foundations of a healthy organisation in this perspective?
Strategic Planning for Ministries (2 Sessions)
The organisational leader works to set the agenda of the organisation, inspire support for the agenda, and effectively direct others in achieving the vision. This session will discuss the following: three philosophical approaches to planning, reasons why plans typically fail, key areas planning needs to occur, and various planning models.
Development Plan (2 Sessions)
The Development Plan is the final component that organisations must address in planning for success. While the effectiveness of a ministry will be determined by how well they achieve their stated mission, motivation will be fueled by a compelling vision, and structure will emerge out of the strategic plan - it will be the development plan that will provide the resources (finances, people, and time) to accomplish what God has placed in our hearts to do!
