On the basis of shared discernment, teams can then set goals and draft plans for the work to which God is calling them.This manual has been designed to assist ministry teams as they engage in strategic planning in retreat or planning summit settings.

Integrated with these steps is the shared discernment process.Part Four, Post-summit, fulfills the final step in the five-step process: i.e., Work the Plan.

Through a series of follow-through meetings combined with work conducted between meetings, the team pursues the goals set during the planning retreat.
