Today’s challenge is to plan what you will do this year. At this point, don’t get into the details of what you need to do. This is a big picture assignment.

Step 2: Write down where you need to focus your energies this year. Pray and ask God to show you the path you should take. Although you’ll want to do things that cover every area of your mission and vision statements, you may decide to focus on one thing. After prayer, you might decide to focus on reaching the lost or discipling the students you have. Or you might want to focus on missions or teaching the basics. Write that one focus on an index card and place it where you constantly see it.

Step 3: Get out your “Dream Big” list of goals. You might want to put some of them on hold until later, but there might be something on there that fits with your focus for this year. Write it on a piece of paper with your focus written on the top.

Do they fit with your vision and mission statements? Get rid of all programs that have a no to any of these questions. Write the programs that are left on your “focus” paper.
