You can use your ministry planning and evaluation process to cooperate with what God is doing. Charts like the ones below (taken from my book Releasing Your Church’s Potential) can help you develop a framework that guides your ministry priorities and decisions for the next 3-5 years. Take each of your ministry areas, and run them through this type of a grid. Doing so can help you evaluate each ministry area, plus create a more focused plan for moving forward.
