Research shows time and again that churches that want to grow and that have a clear plan are more likely to do so. This is not to say that the plan needs to be set in aspic (or carefully laminated and displayed in the porch), rather that it is an organic and living document. It is a work tool – not an end in itself. It is a document that helps you discern who you are in this chapter of your church’s life, where you are called to be, and how you’re going to get there.
Your MAP is yours and needs to serve your needs for God’s purposes! The best MAPs are annotated, a bit dog-eared and well-used (!) The best MAPs are on every agenda of the PCC to be robustly discussed. As each step is taken and each task completed it then becomes a document of celebration and encouragement as well as a place of reflection and learning.
