Business Planning


Planning and goal setting are synonymous terms.  In order to do good planning you must first establish some realistic goals, both short-term and long-term, and in order to accomplish some realistic goals you must do some planning.  When considering business planning, begin by establishing the long-term goal or purpose for your business.  In reality there is one primary purpose for a Christian’s business:  to glorify God.

In practice, glorifying God with your business functions like this:

  1. Fund the Gospel
  2. Meet Needs
  3. Be a Disciple
  4. Make a Profit

Once you’ve established the long-range goals for your business, the next step is to set specific, short-term operational goals.  We’ll break those down as follows:

  1. Setting Priorities for the Use of Money
  2. Financial Priorities
  3. Time Priorities
  4. Ethical Priorities

Business planning is essential for business prosperity.  Businesses, like people, don’t plan to fail – they fail to plan.  If you would like to learn more about business planning from a biblical perspective or how I can help transform your business using the Bible as our guide, email me at or call Kirk at 402-658-7340.

(1) Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31(NKJV)
