Our vision (the way we fulfill our mission of making disciples for the transformation of the world) is this: We __________ God through faith in Jesus Christ, ___________ in our experience and understanding of God, and then we __________ to live our lives guided by God’s Holy Spirit as we love and serve others so that they also may become followers of Jesus Christ.
We are organizing our Church Council so that we can remain focused on our mission and vision. In the coming months, we will select leaders to guide us. On Feb. 11, twenty-seven people gathered to learn about this new organizational plan. Key to that plan is keeping three ideas clearly understood and practiced: Authority, Responsibility, and Accountability.
The measurement of our success is our ability to accomplish our mission. The whole church is accountable to that purpose. The new leadership team will work to assign responsibility, give authority to do the task assigned, and hold everyone accountable for our mission of making disciples.
Here’s a time-line for implementing this leadership development plan:
March 3: Final approval of plan by the Church Council
March: Presentation of the plan, with nominated leaders, to the congregation & feedback meeting.
April 7: Approval of nominees by the Church Council.
May 2: 1st meeting of the new Church Council
I’m grateful for all the people who have worked over the past two years to bring us to this point of strength. It is a sound foundation on which this congregation can continue making disciples for many years. May God bless us all.
See you in worship on Sunday!
