Time to Plan

In the quieter months it’s easier to stop, pray, listen and plan, once that is done then booking venues, sourcing leaders etc. can begin. Planning also has the potential to move us from a place of being stuck to a place of freedom and growth, it keeps us intentional about ministry and the call God has placed on our lives to see ‘young people become lifelong followers of Jesus’.

We have created a planning document which you are welcome to use or adapt for your own ministry. Click here for Planning Document.
