In his book, Seven Practices of Effective Ministry, Andy Stanley writes: "Think Steps, Not Programs" (p. 88). The idea is this: Instead of having a strategic vision that focuses on programs, you have a strategic vision of a people-process, a pathway that takes people from where they are now spiritually, to where you want them to be. Then you make sure that you have all the programs you need along that pathway, in easy, obvious, and strategic steps that take them from point A to point B.
