When you pause and look at our past, you can easily find that churches have been passing through certain stages. Some have naturally developed and shaped by significant drivers like the digital revolution. Some have abruptly appeared due to an unexpected event like the 9.11 tragedy or the COVID-19 pandemic. Major drivers and uncertainties are shaping our future. Future Scenario Planning is to study those future-shaping factors to produce plausible future scenarios. It is not about future predictions. It is all about how to live out today as preparing the dominant future stories. I.G.N.i.T.E. Coaching will promote a long-view in your ministry development with a direction to the most potential future scenarios with a critical question, such as “What will the churches look like in ten years?”
Future Scenario Planning takes an intensive study. Its purpose is to live out today to bridge the gap between today’s narrative of concern or opportunity and the most potential future scenario.
We provide our future scenario planning analysis with three core drivers selected after studying eight major drivers shaping our future. Two uncertainties were introduced in this analysis, producing four plausible scenarios. This analysis will help you develop your ministry strategy for an uncharted territory of Church Online.
We also provide you with our analysis of the past stages since the digital revolution. It will guide you to identify the stage your church is passing through. It will help you avoid any pitfalls in the emerging stages.
