Check Out The 2-Day Visionary and Strategic Planning Retreat for Church Teams
Are you a church leader who is looking for a way to reinvigorate your people and reignite a passion for the mission and purpose of your church? Then a visionary planning retreat is exactly what you need. Based on the principles outlined in Will Mancini's book "God Dreams," this 2-day retreat will provide you and your leaders with the tools and inspiration to discover the unique vision and purpose that God has for your church.
A visionary planning retreat is an opportunity for your leaders to come together in a safe and open environment, where they can be vulnerable and honest about their dreams and the challenges they face. The retreat will be led by an experienced facilitator who has a deep understanding of the principles outlined in "God Dreams" and will guide the conversation, ensuring that everyone's voices are heard and all perspectives are considered.
On the first day of the retreat, you will begin with a time of worship and prayer, setting the tone for the rest of the time together. You will then introduce the concepts from "God Dreams," such as the difference between a "God-dream" and a "good-idea" and the importance of understanding the "DNA" of your church. The morning will be spent working through individual and team exercises to help leaders identify their God-dreams for the church. After lunch, you will begin the process of aligning those dreams with the DNA of the church, discussing how to prioritize and implement them.
On the second day of the retreat, you will start with a time of reflection and review of the previous day's work. You will then dive deeper into the practical steps of implementing the God-dreams, discussing key areas such as budget, staffing, and communication. You will set specific goals and action plans for the next steps in the process. The retreat will end with a time of worship and celebration, committing the plans and dreams to God.
By the end of the retreat, your leaders will have a clear understanding of their God-dreams for the church and a plan for how to move forward in pursuit of them. But this is just the beginning. A visionary planning retreat is not a one-time event, but the start of a journey. You will schedule follow up meeting to track the progress and make any necessary adjustments.
Don't let your church get stuck in the status quo. Invest in the future of your congregation and sign up for a visionary planning retreat today. Let's dream big and watch as God brings those dreams to life. Together, we will create a vibrant, thriving community of faith that is making a difference in the world.
