Community Empowerment Research

We help churches, schools, and community organizations
measure needs of the people they serve,
set strategies to meet those needs, and
assess the impact of their work in service, training, evangelism, and outreach.

Choose How to Serve: Set Strategy

Strategy Clarification

After you identify problems or areas of need, clarify specifically how you can solve that problem or meet those needs.

The results of surveys and interviews enlighten your understanding of people and their situations.  With such precise knowledge we help:

  churches and mission groups design strategies to share the love and Word of God most effectively,

  schools identify strategies to address non-didactic issues in students' lives, and

  community agencies build options to better serve their client community.

Goal- and Strategy-Setting Workshop

In addition to personalized services, Community Empowerment Research provides a 8- to 12-hour workshop to help you identify your mission activities, the impacts you want to make on members, clients, staff, or community, and to set goals and strategies to meet your most important needs.

  Identify what you are really doing, compared to what your aspirations are.

  Assess how well you are doing what you want to do.

  Identify the three most important places to make changes.

  Set goals and describe how you will assess your success at meeting those goals.

The goals and strategies workshop works best if spread over two or three days.  This can be a Friday evening and all-day Saturday; Friday evening, most of Saturday, and a couple hours on Sunday; or two hours at a time over three or four weeks.

We will work with your schedule to find the best times for you.  We only ask that the workshop include as many staff and clients as possible and that all levels of the organization be involved.
