Communication and teamwork is pivotal to achieving any goal. Adding change into the mix makes it even more vital to be aware of communication styles and hone your skills on working together as a team. OSV Consulting services provides individual and group training on many topics that help a parish team succeed. From Emotional Intelligence assessments and training, to dealing with conflict, to change management, the OSV consultants provide customized training options that work for your specific needs.


  Stewardship Strategic Planning

If you need to find “what’s next” for your parish, then the Parish Vision Plan from OSV is your first step. The process is perfect for all parishes that are working to thrive rather than just survive. The Parish Vision Plan can deeply engage your parishioners in your mission. Through the guidance of your OSV Consultant, we take a comprehensive analysis of how to help you thrive, including hospitality, outreach, finances, communication, evangelization and faith formation. The end product is a 3-year detailed plan that truly energizes and unites your parish in your Mission.

OSV Parish Vision Plans provide the strategic planning that your church needs to demonstrate to your parishioners and your community how your goals are turned into actions. A specific plan is fundamental to insuring your organization keeps focused and moving forward, especially as staff and members change and grow. Your Parish Vision Plan is an ideal complement to any fund raising service so your community knows how the funds are being allocated to support your mission.
