Congregational Planning

Putting Plans Into Practice

Rev. Don Sutton, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, New Ulm, MN

Planning is important. Without planning that creates a vision and sets a course by which to achieve the vision, action may be misdirected and for nothing. But planning without implementation may also be a waste since it creates few if any results. With this in mind, this workshop takes a quick look at the importance and processes of planning, followed by a longer look at putting plans into practice.
