How many times have you started a week with intentionality, only to reach the weekend feeling unaccomplished and still unprepared for Sunday? It's easy to let the demands of ministry keep you from doing the actual ministry. That's where the Pastor's Planner will help.

When you prioritize the relationships, tasks, and outcomes that are truly important, you’ll feel a greater freedom to say “no” or “not now” to tasks that can wait.
This simple exercise will help you plan your week with purpose, so when you get to the end and look back, you’ll have a greater sense of accomplishment.
As a pastor, it’s easy to spend your whole day responding to other people’s needs and other people’s priorities. This will help you carve out time for your work.
This planner PDF is designed to give pastors and church leaders, like you, a consistent personal system for each week.
In addition to space to write down some important things, there’s also helpful coaching to prepare you for what’s to come in the life of the church.
This digital download gives you one page for each week of the year. It will help you clarify the desired outcomes for the week, help you think through what you need to do, and even remind you of people who need a one-on-one connection.
This is a simple place for you to reflect on the last week and capture a lesson learned.
When you get to the end of the week, what results do you want to celebrate? Outcomes aren’t tasks; they are achievements.
Jot down a few key tasks for the week, making sure they are connected to the desired outcomes.
Remember, ministry is about people so ask God to bring three relationships to mind.
This short challenge is time-sensitive. It’s meant to let you know what’s coming and give you something important to work on.
Think and meditate on this verse as you move throughout your week.
I've been a minister for over 20 years, I have an MDiv. These last 5 years have been difficult. I felt like church members were asking for things that I didn't know how to provide. I got defensive when they asked for measurables – in part because I didn't know what they wanted.
I have spent the last half hour reading through the planner and I felt a relief that I haven't felt in quite some time. This plan has given me some real examples as to what to do, and reminded me the difference between “planning” and “having a plan.” It's better knowing that it is coming from folks who understand ministry rather than a secular business group, because they aren't the same.
Lastly, I'm grateful for the verse of the week as it is a reminder that I am doing God's work, not my own.
So thanks again, happy new year and Godspeed,
