God’s story in your organization. Just as God is moving and working in the lives of individuals, He is working in the life of the corporate body. Write the story of your church. Collecting the stories of how God has moved through the history of your church is a way to pass on your church’s heritage. Looking back and celebrating the things God has done in your church brings God glory and provides a great foundation to springboard into planning for the future direction of the church. Looking at what God has done in the past can give you insight into how God might want to use your church in the future.
