    Mission: to enlarge & equip God’s Kingdom!

    Vision: By 2020 we aim to be reaching 20,000 people consistently with the Gospel every year. Alongside this we will equip the next generation so that they can disciple the next.

    Our team will not physically be able to make contact with this number of people and we therefore envisage our website, newsletters, online resources and products available through our online shop to be a vital part of our outreach.

    Solution

    Project Tech will see us purchasing new equipment that will enable our expanding team to not only better plan and service our events, but develop our online strategy and provide innovative online resources with which to achieve our aims.

    By developing our website, newsletters and online shop facility we will expand the reach of Pulse Ministries far beyond the bounds of those Churches that we are able to physically visit. Our growing team requires the appropriate technology to service these.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Equip 3 of our team with technology to enable them to reach new and existing audiences.

    Activities

    » Purchase 3 new laptops with associated hardware and software.

    As well as being able to deliver quality events and develop resources, increased online sales, website traffic and newsletter subscriptions would constitute the success of our aim


  • Impact

    Impact

    The team being correctly equipped for their job, allows the charity to be more efficient at achieving it's mission. These resources created using the technology will enable us to continue to reach churches and other organisations. We will demonstrate successes by measuring the number of new newsletter subscriptions and new organisations reached within a year of the purchase of the equipment, as well as the growing team being able to complete tasks professionally and efficiently.

    Risk

    If our team grows beyond the amount of technology we are able to buy, we will be left with a team who are not as equipped for their role and it will slow down the productivity and efficiency of the charity.

    To deal with this, we will make sure we budget and fundraise in order to account for further team growth.

    Another risk is if the team do not have the skills to use the IT purchased, well.

    To deal with this we will make sure we train/equip the team with the necessary skills required.

    Reporting

    We will report to donors through regular social media updates, news bulletins on our website and articles in our newsletters.
