Merry Christmas. We hope that this holiday season has been one of joy and hope. For those personally who have struggled with mental illness over this holiday, we hope you were able to not only manage your symptoms but found restoration and healing as well. As we enter into the final days of the year, we look towards what is to come with excitement and interest in what the new year has to offer. We also are looking to see what yearly goals and plans we can accomplish.
[Editors note: We are going to use the tips we shared at the beginning of the year to figure out how to take on 2020. If you are writing out your plans, we encourage you to go check them out here.]
1. Connect With Others
This website has never been about one person, one ministry, one counseling agency’s way of doing it as the right way. We already are looking at going to a couple of events this next year to speak, but even more so, we want to partner officially with great minds and great ministries. So this is our official call out to other ministries that are wanting to partner to reach churches or counseling agencies so they can better serve their communities for the mission of Jesus and help people who struggle with mental health find reconciliation. Shoot us an email, message us on Facebook, or leave a comment below.
2. More Than A Blog
This will always be a blog, but the hope is that this becomes more than just a website to express opinions about ideas or topics. I have hopes for resources, research, and interviews. In fact, I’ll say it right now: the hope and dream for this site is to become a non-profit. But if we are going to do this, we are going to do it right. With a full budget, full board, and mission statement. I’ve actually been talking with others about this for the last six months in what this would entail. Next year will be about setting the groundwork to get it going.
3. An Updated Look
The website design itself will not change. For my entrepreneurs out there that love to talk shop, we won’t be changing the website theme, but the layout will hopefully change significantly. We are working to make this something your church or counseling center could use regularly. This will require a lot of effort to achieve with the fourth point…
4. Come Up With A Full Ministry Plan
If this sounds like a lot, it is. While this is the last point on the list, it will need to be the first thing we need to complete. We need to figure out how to accomplish all of this in such a short amount of time with a limited amount of resources, therefore, we need to be concise with what we do and intentional in how we approach it. Lots of brain power to spend here.
What would you like to see come from us and how can we help you on your mission to serve everyone?
