Strategic Ministry Planning

We would consider it a privilege to have Clear Vision partner with you and the leaders of your church to help develop a strategic ministry plan for the next 3-5 years.  Here are some things that would help make that process and the final plan most effective:

We work best when you are deeply committed to the following :

Declaring that the Bible is the authoritative Word of God.  

What do we mean by that? The Bible is our source of truth, guidance, wisdom, and direction.  We will look first at what the Bible says and then seek to apply that to our current reality.  While we want to consider our culture, our current reality, and social world in which we live, we are committed to having God’s Word guide our journey.


The Great Commission 

What is that? 3.“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20. What do we mean by that? (click here) We believe the Great Commission calls us to make disciples who make disciples who make disciples. This is more than head knowledge about God. It is a deep commitment to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with people who not yet have a relationship with jesus and then commit to invest in their lives and grow them to maturity in their own faith. That should result in them doing that same thing with people in their sphere of influence.


The Great Commandment

What is that? “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” Mark 12:30 What do we mean by that? (click here) We believe that we are called by God to love Him supremely and to love people unconditionally. All we do in reaching out to other people needs to be based in love and must demonstrate love. We are called to love the lovely, the unlovely, our family, our friends, and our enemies.


A willingness to make changes in how ministry is done, the methods you use, the approaches you use, and the culture of your church.

What do we mean by that? We believe that the mission God has called us to should drive the methods we use to minister to people. So often we get caught up in “we’ve never it this way before” or “we’ve always done it this way”. We want to ask the Holy Spirit to guide our discernment and help answer the question, “How does He want us to do it now in order to most effectively reach the people in our community and our world?” Sometimes this means changing the way we do things. Sometimes it means stopping what we’ve done for a long time. Sometimes it means making small tweaks to something. Sometimes it means we reaffirm continuing to do things the way we have been doing them. Are we open to change? Are we willing to surrender old ways for new ways when we sense the Holy Spirit leading us to do that? Are we willing to pray this prayer of indifference, “Lord, not my will but Yours be done”?
