Pastor’s Planner 2021


An insanely practical PDF, with one printable page for each week of the year, to help you plan every week with purpose. The Pastor’s Planner is a resource to help you prioritize the most important actions, keep you focused on the most important people, and help you remember what’s coming soon. With one page for each week, it will help you stay focused on what (and who) matters most.




In ministry, it’s easy to let the urgent keep you from the important.

How many times have you started a week with intentionality, only to reach the week feeling unaccomplished and still unprepared for Sunday?

Sometimes, interruptions are divine appointments, and the opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus.  But other times, distractions – even with good things – keep you from the most important parts of your job. It’s ironically easy to let the demands of ministry keep you from doing the actual ministry God has called you to do.

That’s where The Pastor’s Planner will help.

It’s a single page for each week to help you prioritize the most important actions, keep you focused on the most important people, and help you remember what’s coming soon.

Here’s a quick rundown of each section.

Key Takeaway:  This is a simple place for you to reflect on the last week and capture a lesson learned.

Three Outcomes:  When you get to the end of the week, what results do you want to celebrate?  Outcomes aren’t tasks; they are achievements.

Action Items:  Jot down a few key tasks for the week, making sure they are connected to the desired outcomes.

People:  Remember, ministry is about people so ask God to bring three relationships to mind.

Think About This: This short challenge is time-sensitive.  It’s meant to let you know what’s coming and give you something important to work on.

Verse of the Week:  Think and meditate on this verse as you move throughout your week.

Each page of The Pastor’s Planner is similar, but you’ll notice timely advice matched to the season of ministry in your church.

You’ll find space to reflect on a key takeaway, determine your key outcomes, jot down key action items, prayerfully consider people who need a connection, and practical and timely advice for the week. It will take as little as 15 minutes a week but provide incredible focus.

What You Get:

This digital download comes with two things.

First, you’ll get immediate access to the digital file. This is a digital resource so you can print one week at a time and keep on your desk or print the whole resource.  Some pastors use the PDF on their iPad or device.  Either way, the digital file is yours to use as you wish.
