Why the “LifePlan” is a process that you should consider!
At regular intervals a congregation needs to take time to prayerfully consider how things are going in its ministry. It needs to consider questions like, “Are there changes that we need to make to become more effective?” “Are there areas we are overlooking where we could be involved in helping and reaching people in our neighbourhood and beyond?”
The LifePlan is drawn as a circle. This is because ministry happens in cycles that either spiral upward with encouraging breakthroughs or …sometimes stall, and spiral onward, in decline. Each section within the LifePlan cycle has been carefully designed to try to help congregations see clearly what Jesus presently has in mind for them as a community of his people.
