“Management By Objectives” is a method for conducting Christian ministry in an orderly, effective manner. It is not enough to just know God’s will for your life and ministry. You must make definite plans to fulfill your spiritual calling. You must learn to work with God to fulfill His purpose and plans.
A serious problem with many Christian leaders is that of organizing and managing spiritual resources God has given them. If laborers for spiritual harvest are few, as the Bible indicates, then they should be effectively organized and managed.
The discipline of organized planning for ministry in no way restricts the freedom of the Holy Spirit. It makes you even more sensitive because you make a conscious decision to seek God’s purpose and plans. Your faith helps execute God’s plan, as God always responds to faith in action.
