Have you ever stepped back from an event your ministry has done and thought, "Why did we do this event?"
I know I have.
Asking that question on the backend of an event is a little too late. There are times in our ministry where we can get stuck in a rut doing the same thing, the same way and not knowing why.
"But, we always do this event."
"People expect us to do this event."
"It's part of our history."
Not compelling reasons, are they?
The one vital question that needs asking when planning an event is, "How does this event fit with the strategy of our ministry, our family ministry, and our church?"
This one question weeds out a lot of the unnecessary when we ask it. Random events with no strategy in furthering the vision of the church won't cut it when you ask that question.
Intentional events are a win for your ministry and your church. When an event is intentional, it moves people in a direction. It moves people towards something. I want people to move in a direction that helps to carry out the vision of our church.
