Cov:net Guided Stratey Day
We at CYFC are passionate about seeing local churches ignited, equipped, and released in life changing mission to young people. We believe that a key to this happening is to enable church youth ministry teams to take time out together to dream and plan for future growth as together. In response to this, we run regular Guided Strategy Days for youth ministry teams in Coventry Churches.
Q: What is a Guided Strategy Day?
A: A day to take time out together, take stock of what you are already doing and consider potential for future growth & health.
A strategy day ideally involves several members of a church’s youth team coming together to learn together, consider where their strengths are and how they can grow their ministry.
Regularly taking time to see a wider view of youth ministry can help teams to think strategically about where they have come from, where they are now and where they are going. This gives them the opportunity as a team to dream about and plan for the next steps they need to take.
Gatherings (ideally twice each year) will give teams the chance to review their progress and see how much God has done. For teams these days have the added benefit of building unity, empowering volunteers to have a say and uniting your team under one vision.
Of course, none of this can happen without an understanding of where God is leading your youth ministry in your own specific context, so dreaming and envisioning is an integral part of this learning process.
Finally, it is hoped that these days will give teams the opportunity to look beyond their context as a part of a learning network, having the chance to learn from other groups who may be one step ahead and to share with people who can learn from your experiences.
Date of next Guided Stategy Day:
1st April 2017
