Create a Simple and Powerful Ministry Plan

Simply turning the page on last year, or throwing more vision at your problems won’t help. You need the clarity that comes from a clear strategic plan. We’ve got the insanely practical training and the easy-to-follow template.

The Two Page Plan® will help you create the clarity you need to do the ministry you’re called to do.

This course is for you if…

  • You want to get all of your people and all of your programs on the same page.
  • You want to clarify what’s truly important, from purpose and mission all the way through the necessary numbers to track.
  • You feel like your church is too busy or too scattered sometimes and needs to get back to what really matters.
  • You want a game plan for what to do and when to do it.

Meet the Instructor

People lead churches because they want to help people and make an eternal difference. That’s why I moved to Atlanta to start a church.

But 18 months into my pastoral journey, it wasn’t the preaching and vision casting holding me back. It was something else. I didn’t know how to read a profit and loss statement and was intimidated and embarrassed in nearly every financial meeting.

I didn’t know how to hire or lead people and ended up deferring when I needed to step up. I didn’t know the first thing about strategy which means we chanced all kinds of off-mission ideas that weren’t right for us. It wasn’t a WOW problem – there was plenty of vision to go around. We had big dreams.

We had a a HOW problem… and I needed help with strategy and execution. This was the stuff I didn’t learn in seminary.

The church has something to offer the world that capitalism never could. We should be the best in the world because our mission is more important. What we offer the world is far more important than an iPhone app or a jar of pickles on the shelves at Walmart.

Over the last five years, we’ve been able to help churches level up in some of these areas. We’re helping leaders add a healthy amount of strategy to go along with all that vision.

We believe your church should be well-organized and well-run.

I’m not talking about relying on a demographic study instead of the Holy Spirit or a focus group instead of prayer time. You’re smarter than that.

You know that leadership is stewardship and you want to use all the resources God has given you to lead well.

Personal consultants might be out of your price range. And online courses that dump too much information on you are too confusing.

That’s where we come in. We’d love to help you prayerfully clarify a strategy for your church. Think of it like a business plan for your church or a Ministry Plan to help you clarify your calling. With prayer and conversation, along with our video coaching and Two Page Plan® tool, you’ll be ready to lead your church into this next sense of ministry with excitement.

More About the Course

You’re called to ministry, you're passionate about the church, and you have big vision. The problem isn’t the WOW. It’s the HOW.

You need help with: strategy, execution, alignment, and clarity.

An expensive consultant dazzles you with terminology and you’re drawn into a comprehensive process, peppered with promises of change. But in the end, a fancy report is shared briefly in a meeting then ends up in a computer folder somewhere.

Nothing really happens, nothing really changes. You might pull it out next year to see just how much you DIDN’T do. It’s a double fail: tons of work and minimal impact. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Building Your Ministry Plan is an insanely practical course to guide you and/or your team through the process of creating a two page “business plan” for your ministry.

This course comes with 15 video modules, perfect to watch on your own, watch with your team, or share with other leaders in your church.

When you finish the course and complete your Two Page Plan®, you will have a document that describes everything important in your church. You know what to work on, what roles to fill, what ministries need focus, what challenges to solve, and what meetings to hold.

  • VIDEO 1 – Purpose
  • VIDEO 2 – Mission
  • VIDEO 3 – Vision
  • VIDEO 4 – Core Values
  • VIDEO 5 – Strategy
  • VIDEO 6 – Profile
  • VIDEO 7 – Distinctives
  • VIDEO 8 – Keystone Ministries

and more!

Each module is insanely practical, pointing to actionable resources and tools to help you implement what you learn.

More Clarity. Better Planning. Effective Ministry.

less confusion

When you document your plans and strategy, there will be less confusion.  Everyone will know what happens, when it happens, and why it happens.  This “same-page thinking” will keep everyone working together.

No need to remember

When you have a documented strategy, understood and followed by all, you won’t have to guess as what is most important or make ministry decisions based solely on a sense of urgency.

more people connected to the mission

While there are parts of your church that would benefit from being run more like a business, your real mission is people and helping them follow Jesus.  Good strategy and planning is ultimately about helping more people become Jesus followers.

Churches that have completed their Two Page Plan are experiencing amazing benefits.

It finally got our elders and staff on the same page.

It’s helping us identify what is really important.

It’s giving us the ability to say no to good things that just don’t fit.

We’re using it in our staff meetings and leadership retreats to make sure we talk about what is really important and not small stuff that only feels urgent in the moment.

It’s does such a great job at capturing the important stuff that we actually use it in our new member class.
