The Missional Mindset
Our buildings can only be effective ministry tools if they are utilized with a missional mindset. We believe that God has called the local church to be a lighthouse in our communities. In order to sustain the calling we have been given to preach the Gospel to ALL people, we must be able to identify, assess, and respond to the needs of our community.
Embracing Change through Practical & Intentional Strategy
No matter where your church is in its story, one of the hardest things you will ever do as a leader is to shepherd your congregation through change. We all know that change can challenge our comfort zones, stretch our faith and can be a divisive force if not led through with deliberate discernment and care. We live in a world that is changing faster than ever. A hundred years ago, very little changed in one’s lifetime. Today, the culture and economy of our world seems to experience radical upheaval every few years.
Our goal at BGW is to help ministries embrace this catalytic culture head on. We believe that this is best done through practical, intentional strategy that takes stock of where your ministry has been and looks through eyes of faith into the future.
StratOp: A strategic planning system that can help your ministry clarify where you are, where you’re headed, and how to get there.
StratOp is a strategic system that helps leaders and teams focus on what matters most, to reach new levels of impact. StratOp equips them to clarify their purpose, make their vision clear, and move forward with strategic impact. It’s used by organizations big and small, from billion-dollar global corporations to entrepreneurial startups, churches, and non-profits.
If your ministry is asking questions like “What’s our vision?”, “How do we make a greater impact?” or “How do we move forward from here?”, you could benefit greatly from intentional strategic planning to bring about alignment, growth, and clarity. We have found that as ministry leaders walk through this proven process, the pitfalls of the unknown are eliminated by gaining enlightening new perspective together. Fresh perspective creates clarity, gets a team moving in the same direction, and lays the foundation for transformational next steps.
Our partners at Headwind Planning Solutions are not only certified in facilitating the StratOp system, they are also experienced ministry leaders and church planters. More than just consultants, they are uniquely equipped to help your leadership team bring clarity out of uncertainty and help facilitate meaningful growth. Owner Mark Orphan is the Executive Pastor at The Genesis Project in Fort Collins, CO and has facilitated the StratOp planning process with many faith-based organizations, including the leadership of BGW. If your ministry is looking to achieve greater clarity, alignment, momentum and growth, Mark and his team can help.
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 a heart to walk alongside fellow pastors and support them in establishing a clear and vibrant missional identity. 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.
Throughout the pastoral 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.
