Part 3: what will be?

Based on the analysis and input from the previous two parts, each participant applies the new information to their own culture, model and missional context. Each individual or team makes a six-month plan with measurable and achievable objectives and confirms their 2-year faith goals. This plan will help improve their effectiveness in moving towards their God-given vision and the goals keep the big picture in front of them. Over the months between each Learning Community gathering, the participants remain accountable for their progress towards their goals and for the implementation of their plans.
