The StratOp Process
A strategic planning system that can help your ministry clarify where you are, where you’re headed, and how to get there.
The StratOp process begins with a 3 day, immersive vision retreat for your leadership team. However, it’s much more than a one-time planning event. StratOp is a full system that moves from big picture vision to practical action steps. Most strategic planning processes move as quickly as possible from perceived problem to assumed solution, missing key insights that bring about meaningful change and long-term unity. StratOp is different, emphasizing perspective first. When we first understand where we are and how we got here, our plans for the future are built on sharper insight and provide more effective solutions. This proven process has helped churches and non-profits as well as hundreds of for-profit companies, professional sports teams and even governments.
We believe that pastors provide the best collaborative partners for other pastors. Who better to invite into the “foxhole” of ministry than one who intimately understands the challenges you are facing?
BGW has partnered with experienced pastors of growing and embedded ministries that have the heart to share their strategic approaches with other church leaders. Led by Pastor Matt Roberts and his team at the Genesis Project, these Church Strategy Consultants offer practical wisdom for the unique setting of your community and your ministry calling. They have a heart to partner with local pastors and walk alongside them to help establish a clear and vibrant missional identity.
Throughout the embedded ministry coaching process, you will gain the personal insight of an initial onsite visit, find personal rejuvenation through a personalized Life Plan for you and your spouse and receive weekly coaching and follow-up by another seasoned pastor. All of this will lead you toward a new and fresh vision of engagement in your life, family, congregation and community.

The BGW “Story Call”
We want to know the story of the churches that we work with. Every church is different and it would be a mistake to believe there is a one-size-fits-all solution for every church. That is why our process begins with listening. We want to understand where a church has been so that we might help it go where God is calling it to go.
This perspective gathering is the focus of our introductory 30 minute “Story Call”. During this phone call we seek to understand a church’s leadership, mission, organizational structure, financial situation, growth trajectory, community engagement and more. Following this call, a recommendation is made regarding next steps and the strategic partners that could help you on your path.
