Future Focus: The Way Ahead

Future Focus: The Way Ahead is a new resource that will allow congregations to explore Future Focus without the assistance of an external facilitator. The handbook contains all that is needed for a small group from within the congregation to engage in a series of exercises that explore the life of the church and community, and is designed to build confidence and identify easily achievable goals. This may be sufficient for some congregations, or provide a useful foundation for a more in-depth process with a facilitator.

Future Focus: The Way Ahead is a free resource for congregations.
