Find out how you are doing in the area of missions strategy by asking these 5 questions organization-wide:
At OneHope, we have set the audacious goal of reaching 4.2 billion children with God’s Word by the year 2030. To achieve this goal, we’ve had to architect a strategic plan and begin laying groundwork to catalyze a global church movement.Our blueprint will not only help us attain this reach, but will also allow churches to lay tracks for continued reach and discipleship for generations to come.
A lot of the weight of fulfilling the Great Commission falls on the shoulders of pastors as well as church and ministry leaders; it’s their responsibility to build a biblical theology of missions into the life of their church or para-church organization so that congregants are informed and able to be good stewards of the resources God has given them to invest well in the kingdom. Unfortunately, a lot of churches and organizations spend little time thinking about what their missiology is going to be, let alone communicating it, and fail to garner buy-in from their people.
