The focus of Strategic planning is identity and mission. It is a highly contextual and a helpful process which we design for each congregation.  We offer everything from a single consultation, to a commitment to work with the congregation from articulating their purpose and creating their of goals through the implementation of action plans, and their evaluation. 

Guided Process: 

Goal: For your congregation to be able to:

  • articulate their core values,

  • clarify their purpose,

  • participate in the mission of God in Snohomish,

  • have a clear vision of where God is leading

  • develop a set of goals

  • along with action plans that they implement fully so that they can

  • evaluate their progress and

  • celebrate what God is doing through them

  • and decide on their next steps.

We offer two options for acheiving these goals.

Option 1:

Contract with Living the Resurrection for between one year and eighteen months, though  

the contract could be extended by a few months if something happens that gets us behind schedule.

Your congregation recruits a Strategic Planning Team. Pastor Marj will train the team via Zoom sessions so that they can do the preparatory work for each workshop. When the team has completed the necessary work, Pr Marj will come and facilitate the workshop. 

The three Workshop Weekends could look like this:

  • Pastor Marj would arrive on Friday and meet with the team in the evening.

  • Saturday workshop will be with the team and select congregation members (5 hours)

  • Sunday worship and session (1.5- 2 hours) with the congregation.

  • Pastor Marj return home Sunday early evening.


In addition, there would be 8-10 Online 90 minutes sessions where Pastor Marj would train the team—there will be homework between sessions.

Cost for 3 Workshop Weekends and 8-10 online sessions = $9,500

Plus expenses for travel from San Luis Obispo, CA to congregation, housing, and meals for each of the 3 Workshop Weekends.

Option 2

Same process as above except that Pastor Marj would facilitate the first two workshop weekends and the team would facilitate the last one. We would need to add 2-3 more online sessions to train the team to do this.

Cost for   $7,500.

Plus expenses for travel from San Luis Obispo CA to congregation, housing, and meals for each of the 3 Workshop Weekends.
