Be Fully Funded – We need to raise enough funds to support the daily operations and necessary staff.
Build a Team of Volunteers – by connecting with people who have volunteered with us in the past we will build a team of about 36 – 40 people to help with partnership development and mobilizations.
Begin to Build the Infrastructure – working with volunteers we will create systems and procedures for everything we do. This will ensure everyone is on the same page. Some of these systems will be developed over time, but we want to make sure that we have a basic how-to structure planned out.
- Partnership Development – how we approach businesses and organizations, how we share our mission & vision, how we onboard a new partner, how we follow up and maintain a good relationship, etc.
- Mobilizations – how we share our mission & vision in services and other large group
- Training – creating training modules for volunteering, leading and outreach, establishing prayer sets, etc.
The goal of the partnerships is to inspire organizations with the vision of seeing 24/7/365 worship, prayer, and outreach happening throughout the city. With our partnership we will provide them with the necessary training and resources on how to create effective, sustainable outreaches and prayer sets. Our heart is to create win-win partnerships with all our partners.
We will also provide our partners with training resources that will help create effective, sustainable volunteers, outreaches, and prayer sets. We want to make sure that every partner can create quality, effective volunteers to help with their outreaches and prayer sets.
It is during this phase that outreaches and prayer sets are starting and continuing to happen all over the city. The more partners we can onboard the more we’ll see 24/7/365 worship, prayer, and outreach happening!
OUR PLAN OF IMPACT
Our goal is to establish Partner Development teams for each district in Chicago. These teams are responsible for connecting with every person, ministry, and business in their district to learn how we can support them and if they are interested in partnering with Love Chicago.
OUR GROWTH PLAN
Building systems that will create sustainable ministry partnerships. It is our heart to build quality, long-lasting relationships that are a win-win for all involved. We believe that it is through these partnerships that city transformation will happen!
