Last night at our family meeting, we talked through three priorities and five strategic plans for next year. We’ve spent a lot of time evaluating and assessing the strengths and weaknesses of 2016; and, entering 2017, we are full of faith and believing the best is yet to come.
INSPIRE THE NEXT GENERATION
Investing into District Kids and volunteering at our schools
EQUIP MORE DISCIPLES
Helping our church see themselves as missionaries to our city
EXPAND OUR INFLUENCE
Digging deeper in our neighborhoods of the city and planting churches
Five Strategic Focus Areas:
- Articulate and be aggressive about our culture
- Develop and train more leaders
- Create clear "next-steps" for people
- Pray and Pester the LORD
- Cultivate relationships--remember, every new person gets seven new friends
We’ll unpack more of these five key areas of the final days of this year as we prepare for 2017. Thank you so much for believing and trusting your staff to lead you. We are constantly humbled that we get to see the Lord change so many lives week-after-week. We are praying that 2017 will be a year of us making more disciples by interrupting people’s lives with love because the Gospel changes everything!
Honored to be your pastor,
