Strategic Ministry Planning

Strategic Ministry Planning training and workshops are available


Strategic ministry planning is another priority of work for Northwest Conference leadership.

Training workshops such as ONE: A Unified Approach to Strategic Planning are available on a regional level.

NWC staff members are also available to meet with church leaders or facilitate ministry planning conversations. We look forward to helping your congregation plan for future growth and vitality.


Training workshops such as EPIC (Empowering People, Inspiring Change) are available on both a regional and local level. While Veritas provided the language. EPIC provides the “how-to”.

As a follow-up workshop to Veritas, EPIC talks about the spirituality, chemistry and strategy of leading healthy missional change, and equips leaders with the necessary tools. EPIC also explores the inner life of the leader and how to be a “non-anxious presence” while leading through the turbulent waters of change. While many pastors and lay leaders lead change from the seat of their pants, EPIC helps us to think through the process of change sequentially from beginning to end.

EPIC does not tell churches what to change, but how to change… and how to change in a way that is civil, compassionate, and Christ-honoring.

If you would like to find out more about EPIC, please contact Jon Kramka by email or call the NWC office.
