“Institutions clearly must plan, and understand the extent to which those plans are successful, if they are to remain vital, vibrant, and viable.” Hollowell, Middaugh, and Sibolski

Recognizing the importance of planning, Lancaster Bible College is committed to a planning process that is cyclical, consistent, comprehensive, and current.  The purpose of planning is to help LBC remain grounded in her mission, effective in its implementation, all the while being prepared to respond to her internal and external environments.  LBC’s planning is global in scope, readily absorbed, intentional, outcome-based, and continuously articulated to her constituencies.

Planning is an important management tool assisting the College in creating her future by establishing a direction consistent with her mission while fulfilling her institutional and student goals, and responding to the ministry leadership needs of both the Church and the society in which she serves.

Planning at Lancaster Bible College focuses on what should or could be in the future.  The Academic Council and student support departments have the responsibility of establishing a clear vision and target for their respective areas.  Their plans also include a rationale of how the vision or target fulfills the mission of the college, and how it fits within the College’s institutional and student goals.  Each department is charged with developing a rolling five year plan that will enable the College to meet the vision and target, thus contributing to fulfilling the College mission.
