Strategic Planning

MINISTRY STRATEGIC PLAN

CHURCH VISION & DEVELOPMENT PLANS

A Strategic Ministry Plan (SMP), also known as a Ministry Strategic Plan (MSP), is a management tool that helps churches perform more effectively when ministering to its people and the community it serves. The goal of the plan is for members of a church to work towards the same goals with strong levels of energy and focus.

Watch our resourceful video blog to learn more about how to create a Ministry Strategic Plan!
Additionally, the SMP will assess and adjust a church’s future direction in response to its ever-changing environment. In other words, Strategic Ministry Planning is a disciplined effort to clarify development plans, foundational decisions and create an action plan that will shape and guide a church’s vision – who it is, what it does, and why it does it; all while keeping a focus on the future.
