Ministry Master Plans
The goal of a Ministry Master Plan is to help churches and Christian ministries develop a more focused and therefore effective ministry. The process includes an assessment of the purpose, milestones and ministry focus of the church; a development of the Core Values and a Vision Statement and the creation of Goals and a five year Ministry Plan.

The process of the Ministry Master Plan includes staff and board retreats, focus groups, planning and goal setting teams, all of which results in a comprehensive report written by The Goehner Group consultant in cooperation with a planning team. The Ministry Master Plan is often an important step before a church can proceed with a capital campaign or pastoral search.
