ABSTRACT
The article offers the author's insights on the need of a church to develop a Church Plan. He says that the church's expanding roles in community social services require management of its operations similar to a business with a Business Plan, to better serve the community. He says that a Church Plan must include a Mission Statement of the business and spiritual goals, strategies, and objectives of the church. The author adds that financial statements must also be included in the Church Plan.
