Developing a Spiritual Growth Plan

Over the past few weeks, I have been putting together a tool for our church. We have taken the mission and vision of our church, and combined it with a process to help people develop a Spiritual Growth Plan. Our elder team is passionate about helping people grow in their faith, and this tool is just another way we can help people grow. Here is what we did:

  • First, we created a brochure that shows how our events and activities relate to our mission and vision. This brochure has a section of next steps that people can take to grow in the three main relationship areas of their life. Their relationship with God, their relationship with others, and their relationship with the world.
  • Second, we incorporated this information into our website at  On our website, people can create a customized Spiritual Growth Plan based on our activities and resources from Cornerstone. The plan is then emailed to them as a report.
  • Finally, we incorporated this same Spiritual Growth Plan into our church mobile app, so that people have yet another way to utilize what we have created.

Our goal is that this tool will be continually updated with new resources and activities at Cornerstone. A Spiritual Growth Plan is a way to be intentional about becoming more like Christ.  Our Sermon Series Next shares more about our plans and vision for Cornerstone. Here is a screenshot from our website. Let me know your thoughts and ideas in the comments below.
