Ethos Communion Church Vision Matrix

If you didn’t know, baseball is one of my hobbies. To be more specific, developing my son into a baseball player is one of my hobbies. As we are on this journey of him becoming the best hitter and pitcher that he can be, we of course have an interest in Shohei Ohtani who is the generational, if not legendary player, who is hall of fame caliber at both hitting and pitching. In watching a documentary on his life, I discovered a goal matrix that he had created when he was only 15 years old. Looking into this some more, I discovered that he had learned this method of planning from Takashi Harada. There is a book that summarizes his method called The Harada Method. The book is a good read, but I have especially latched onto the 64 box goal matrix and have found that this is such a nice way to capture both the simplicity and complexity of a goal all at once.

Basically, it starts with a central goal, which then is broken down into eight areas that will contribute towards that goal. Then, each of these eight areas are broken down into eight more specific areas to accomplish those eight.

Applying it to church planting, this is what I came up with. It’s still a work in progress, so feel free to comment and pray!
