Mission statements, though rarely spoken off are not irrelevant. They’re not spoken of or declared as important as they used. This doesn’t make them unimportant. The Church’s mission doesn’t change; making disciples and teaching them obey Jesus’ teaching. A community of people becoming more and more Christlike. Every church tech team needs a mission statement of sort.
Mission statements, or whatever you choose to call them, are necessary. They are a tether. Stating why your team exists means it doesn’t waste resources on irrelevant pursuits. Everything done, must be deliberate, purposeful. Mission statements, as they state intent, help distinguish between what should and shouldn’t be.
This applies to your tasks and focus. Mission statements help teams weigh the importance of each action. Assess the relevance of technology or its use.
