The Case Statement

The Case Statement is the foundational document for the programme. It summarises the mission objectives of the church, the stewardship and financial challenges, and the giving target that will both sustain and grow mission and ministry. Its preparation will gently test the church leadership commitment.
All the key information and key strategic decisions for the programme will arise out of the preparation of the Case Statement. Again, all the early work and conversation of the planning group is focused on completing, revising and communicating the case statement. Don’t start designing a programme or preach a sermon until you are confident of a robust case statement that has captured the imagination and commitment of your leadership. A sample case statement is available to illustrate how a completed case might look.
