Ministry Planning and Review (MP&R) is a process that starts with the idea that employees of the church should participate in the analysis of their work in a context reflecting the mission of the church.
The Ministry Planning and Review System is designed to help members and leaders of church staffs build more satisfying and fruitful ministries. The effectiveness of the staff is often determined by how well plans are created and followed. But planning by itself is not enough! For one's ministry to be most effective, a support system is required. The MP&R System is a way to combine careful planning for ministry with a supportive review process that involves members of staff with the staff leader.
MP&R is an approach that focuses leaders, teams, and congregation together on celebrating ministry while improving performance toward ministry results. MP&R builds up the body of Christ, strengthening the congregation in important ways: Pastor and other church leaders are enabled to better steward their competencies. Team relationships are strengthened. Pastoral and Team performance planning is improved. Persons who have used MP&R report feelings of being liberated for more creative ministry.
