Enjoyed this post over at Effective Youth Ministry – it focuses not on just creating but actually using a purpose statement. A purpose statement is critical to your youth ministry, if you don’ t have one get started by reading Purpose Driven Youth Ministry for sure! Here’s a clip, head there for the rest of the solid perspective:

LIVE by those goals, every week and every day. Keep them in front of you and use them to set your agenda each day. Constantly ask yourself, “Is what I’m doing right now accomplishing this quarter’s goals?” If not, don’t do it!

Review all of your goals each quarter and set new quarter goals. Did you accomplish last quarter’s goals? Why or why not? What did you learn?

Revise everything annually. Your purpose statement and big goals may not change much, but always be ready to make adjustments as you go along. Don’t keep goals just because you used to think they were a good idea. If they’re not a good idea anymore, change them.
