Strategic Intent  vs. Strategic Plan
Following the Wild Goose into a New Day

In this seminar, learn how to develop a ministry plan based on strategic intent, creating maximum flexibility while helping your ministry remain committed to its non-negotiable values. Discover the wisdom of the ancient Celts in “following the Wild Goose” through time tested practices of discernment.
