Welcome to Purpose-Driven Strategy. Every organization needs a clearly defined vision for the direction the ministry is headed. The problem is that traditional corporate manifestos (Vision, Mission, Value Propositions and Core Values) are often lengthy, confusing, and rarely easily recalled by staff, volunteers or donors. And that’s exactly what is needed, easy recollection of the mission at hand. In this course, we’ll discuss ministry guiding principles that are rooted in the emotionally engaging story structure of The Hero’s Journey, and we’ll show how you can provide clear direction for your organization and audience using this time tested story structure.
This course is designed for ministry leaders and marketing directors looking to simplify their guiding principles and create a strategy that is actionable, rather than one that uselessly sits in an employee handbook. The principles you’ll learn in this course are used extensively in the commercial marketing sector, and it’s time the Church and Christian ministries across the globe started using these principles to their advantage.
