Church Planners — Visioning
Here we focus on:
- Transforming Church Index assessment services
- Project financial planning and coaching
- Leadership and Ministry focus groups and coaching
- Strategic planning sessions
Do you know when not to build? Do you have a clear vision and mission? Is your congregation united behind the leadership and that vision? Do you have a sense for the space needed and if your financial resources can support building? Experience has shown that projects with effective leadership, a strong vision and a solid financial model have a very high probability of success. That's why this step is vital.

Aspen Group strategic planners have the knowledge - and the network of experts - to guide your church through this foundational phase. We come alongside you early in the process to first help you clarify your church's unique passions and gifts, give you insight into cultural trends and research that should factor into your plans, and then help you clearly define your vision.
Church Builders - Practical Tools
We also provide practical tools to help your church select and train building committee members. In-depth strategic planning services are also available. These services will crystallize your vision, define prioritized action steps and unite your congregation around that vision. Lastly, we develop a conceptual program of the space your ministry needs, an estimate of cost and an analysis of your financial capability to fund it. All this without engaging expensive specialists. This Visioning - or Alignment - phase, is the bedrock of a church building project's success. Learn about the next step in Aspen's Firm Foundations design/build process.
