Developing Your Mission

Image & Mission of Living Bridge Church in Gibsonia, PA. 2011

I’m a firm believer that a well developed AND a well implemented mission statement can make a huge difference in your ministry. The hard parts are developing and implementing. You don’t want a statement that nobody remembers or cares about and of course there really is no point if your leadership and membership don’t embrace the mission as their own. A good mission statement will create excitement, build momentum, strengthen unity, and reinforce vision.

I’ve already written a lot about this, so for your benefit I’ve included links to each relevant article here. I hope you find them helpful.
