You are a faithful follower of Christ. He has given you a vision, a mission, and a strategy. You have prayed it, planned it, and are executing it. And things are going just OK. Common failure points include:
Priorities and Focus – Lack of written priorities can feel like you are running in sand.
- Roadmap – It’s amazing how many organizations do not have a roadmap. Without it, everyone might be running at full speed – but in wrong/different directions.
- Funding – It’s like wind to a sailboat. Without it, you sit and go nowhere. Do you have plan? How are you asking? Will it be to existing donors, referrals, programs, etc.?
- Go-to-Market – Most ministries won’t use this term but it’s mission-critical to proliferate and share your God given vision, mission, and content.
- Personnel/Volunteers – The harvest is plenty but where are the workers? Without the proper infrastructure, engagement, and communication plan – it’s a nice short relationship.
