When it comes to approaching a new year, there are some common pitfalls ministry leaders fall into. One is that they don’t plan at all, and another is that they set monumental goals without creating a functional plan that has practical value.
On one hand, we know that God is not bound to our plans. We serve a sovereign God who moves as He will and sometimes completely upends our plans! But we also know that Christ has called us to count the cost (Luke 14:28) and occupy until He comes (Luke 19:13). Occupying speaks of settling down where God has placed us and getting something done for His glory.
If we fail to plan, we end up with busyness without real momentum or accomplishment. By spending time in December to create an annual plan for the coming year, however, we can step back, look at the big picture, and carefully evaluate how well our time is allocated in relation to our stated mission and goals.
What does that mean practically? And how is it done?
In this new episode of the Spiritual Leadership Podcast, I share five practical steps to creating a cohesive, annual plan. These steps integrate your personal and family life with your ministry planning. I pray they are a blessing to you.
