In 2015, KCM engaged consultant firm Dini Spheris to conduct an environmental scan and to begin a strategic planning process creating a five-year plan that would promote a healthy and strong message to the community demonstrating the importance of the organization. Since that time, KCM has accomplished most of its goals ahead of the five-year planning schedule. As an organization, KCM has attained a greater level of community involvement, wants to maintain the impact on the community, and engages the means necessary for its continued growth.
In July of 2019, the KCM management team engaged in a partnership with mentors to facilitate the creation of a new Strategic Plan 2021-2025. The new plan was designed to help KCM continue into the next level of effectiveness in the community, provide expansion of greater resources and move into areas needed for growth in the future. It was also designed to concentrate efforts in the areas of development such as building new initiatives and strengthening them for improved sustainability. Furthermore, it emphasized the needs of the community utilizing a holistic model of services and the adequate space required to thrive.
The purpose of the new Strategic Plan 2021-2025 centered on the expansion of KCM’s Vision, maintaining its Mission and Core Values, with a focus on continued growth and expansion of the organization. Key objectives for the process included:
Renewing the Vision for KCM while maintaining its Mission and Core Values.
Setting new goals to continue and expand on the current and completed goals.
Planning for the next five years of growth for KCM.
Therefore, the two main Board approved goals for new the Strategic Plan 2021-2025 are:
1. By the end of 2025, KCM will acquire a facility with sufficient space to meet current and future growth.
2. By the end of 2025, KCM will manage a diversified income portfolio with continual annual growth.
These two main goals are the branches of the big overarching goal and new vision:
BHAG: “By 2025, Katy Christian Ministries will expand programs and own, unencumbered, a facility to meet the needs of the greater Katy community.”
KCM’s new Vision: “Self-Sufficient communities through Christ’s love”
