STRATEGIC ENVISIONING

GAIN MOMENTUM THROUGH
Strategic Envisioning

Strategic Envisioning is a proven process to help churches clarify a shared dream and plan for the future so that they can gain disciple-making momentum in their context.

STRATEGIC ENVISIONING IS A 3-STEP PROCESS

STEP 1: PREPARE

Prepare the groundwork for growth and change.

The first stEP is about preparing the church for the process of Strategic Envisioning.

KEY GOALS:

  • Forming a Strategic Leadership Team (SLT)
  • Conducting the Church Ministry Analysis (CMA)
  • Laying a Spiritual Foundation
The second stage is about DEVELOPING A CLEAR DREAM AND PLAN FOR THE CHURCH, BUILT AROUND FIVE FUNDAMENTAL QUESTIONS.

THE FIVE QUESTIONS:

1) The Mission Question: What is our mandate?

2) The Values Question: What is the kingdom culture we are building?

3) The Discipleship Question: How will we structure ministry so we accomplish our mandate?

4) The Vision Question: Where are we going?

5) The Strategy Question: What will we focus on this year.

 

The Plan step includes three on-site sessions facilitated by your TMG Guide to work through the five fundamental questions.

The church ends this step with a strategic plan on a page, called the Ministry X-Matrix, and strategic action plans for Implementation.

Churches can add optional sessions, if desired, to get further training and clarity around the following strategy areas:

  • Community Outreach
  • Finances (Zero-Based Budgeting)
  • Staffing
  • Succession Planning
  • Leadership Pipeline Design
  • Volunteer Culture (Congregational Mobilization)
  • Guest Experience
  • Governance & Polity

STEP 2: PLAN

gain clarity around the five fundamental questions.

step 3: Perform

implement action plans & gain disciple-making momentum.

The Third step is about putting strategies into practice and pursuing the Vision.

The Malphurs Group utilizes a four-step Implementation process:

1) Make (Finalize Action Plans)

2) Move (Implement Action Plans)

3) Measure (Evaluate performance against pre-determined benchmarks)

4) Modify (Tactical adjustments to ensure success)

Your TMG Guide walks your church through the Implementation process via remote coaching for one year following the on-site work sessions.
