If you have been thinking, "How do I/we provide effective direction and leadership for the ministry that God has entrusted to me/us?,” this workshop is for you.  An overview of the strategic ministry planning process that has been used recently at Faith Church will be presented.  This includes the rationale for, and the benefits of, strategic ministry planning.

This is a session from the Biblical Counseling Training Conference hosted by Faith Church in Lafayette, Indiana. 

People are looking for the hope that there are answers for their hurts, their difficulties, and the challenges they face. Since 1985, the Biblical Counseling Training Conference has been equipping ministry professionals and lay leaders to skillfully, confidently, and lovingly minister God's Word to those looking for answers.
