The Strategic Plan’s Visioning Summit was held on January 11 and 12. The Ministry Architects team led 60 Elders, Deacons, Trustees, staff and Design Team members in brainstorming.
The Summit resulted in a deeper understanding about the mission of our church, our core values, our 10 year goals, and how we will measure achievement.
The Design Team now needs to translate these ideas into action steps. The result will then be presented to Session for discussion about a clear plan forward.
In parallel to the Summit, the following topics are being studied by various teams of church members:
- Stewardship: defining a comprehensive stewardship approach that encompasses time, talent, spiritual gifts as well as financial contributions
- Governance: surveying 8 other similar size churches in the Presbytery on their governance model
- Ministries inventory: launching a survey to all Ministry leaders to measure the current time and talent commitment of each Ministry
