Strategic plans have become imperative planning tools for all organizations in all sectors. Commercial and industrial companies use the plans to enable them to, among other purposes, strategically position themselves for competition in their sectors and market, prepare and adjust to changes in the operating environment, identify challenges and opportunities and set goals and targets. On the other hand, non-profit organizations tend to use strategic plans to define the areas of focus with regard to thematic or development programme areas and sometimes also use them as shopping baskets with the donors and partners. Strategic plans are also used by the institutions of learning to define and describe their choices of requisites,
methods and techniques in pursuit of academic excellence.
Indeed, all organizations and institutions the world over have embraced strategic planning and production of strategic plans. The importance of a strategic plan - a tool for defining the focus of operation, setting goals and laying the road map towards the desired results - cannot be overemphasized.
The Seventh-Day Adventist Church - Nairobi Central (SDAC-NC) has produced and adopted this Strategic Plan to guide on the path towards defined goals, good institutional governance, satisfactory service to the congregation, and pursuit of other overarching objectives. The document seeks to, among others, provide the history of the SDAC-NC and its relationship with the Seventh-Day Adventist Church as a Christian denomination, state the world church’s vision and mission to which the SDAC-NC subscribes, describe the strength and weaknesses that should be taken into consideration, state where it is in terms of the areas of focus, where it wants to be, and the path to the set objectives and targets.
