The Strategic Plan
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him – but God has revealed it to us by His Spirit”. I Corinthians 2:9-10a
Prayer for the Strategic Plan
"Almighty God, this is a prayer for our Order. An Order begun by the prayer and the planning of one woman. It was and is Your plan, Your vision... for we are here - we are growing - we are alive in You. Surround us with Your light and wisdom as we continue to unfold Your will for us, set at the very beginning. Every aspect, every movement towards love, every person touched by the prayer, service or action of one of Your Daughters is Your orchestration. Yet You call us to come, to take up the work of the planning - to listen to Your voice and to make use of the fullness of Your grace to become what You seek in us.
Give Your direction to our dialogue, and grant us an awareness of where we need to go, what we must be in this world today. Casting nets into the depths of Your great possibility, we ask for the interweaving of creativity, openness, generosity and love as we prepare to carry forward what has been blessed by You.
In the name of Jesus the Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit we ask this. Amen."

The Need for a Strategic Plan
As we celebrate 131 years of ministry, it is very important for us to look to the future and to prayerfully discern where we want our Order to be 131 years from now. To that end, our Strategic Planning Committee has begun the process of developing a long-term strategic plan for The Order. This plan will provide a road map for our future.
Why do we need a strategic plan? A strategic plan:
· Serves as a map for an organization
· Is shaped by the overall mission and vision of an organization
· Comprehensively reviews all of the activities, programs and ministries of an
· Aligns mission and operations
· Spells out the goals everyone in the organization wants to achieve
Questions our Strategic Plan will ask:
1. Where/Who are we as an Order?
2. Where do we want to go?
3. How do we want to get there?

The Planning Process
The strategic plan involves all Daughters. Throughout 2016 we have been asking you individually, as well your chapters, diocesan assemblies and provinces to join with the National Council in conversation about the ongoing work of The Order of the Daughters of the King®.
The Strategic Planning Survey closed on September 30th with over 1700 responses! We send a very big THANK YOU to all who took the time to complete the survey either online or on paper. Your input will be reviewed by the Strategic Planning Committee and be used to further develop the road map for the future of The Order.
Please keep the development of the strategic plan in your prayers as we work to guide our Order, with the help of the Holy Spirit, into the future. Let us pray together "Lord, what will you have us do?"
