MINISTRY TEAM VISION
PURSUING CULTURAL CHANGE
The great overarching goal is that our church would become more merciful, more given to outreach, more given to deeper fellowship. The desire of our hearts and the focus of our prayers are that the gospel would really take root in us, change us in each of these areas, and that the world would be struck anew with wonder as to the reality of the living Christ.
PROGRAMMING TANGIBLE ACTS
Each team will develop intentional ministry strategies appropriate to our mission field and in accord with the overall vision of the church. This is to be done with the following in mind:
The fact these things are good in and of themselves (e.g., Angel Tree Ministry, Fellowship Meals, Welcome Packets)
The hope they will lead us toward these "cultural changes"
The reality of the inevitable entropy (lack of movement) that will take place without some strategic plan. Again, the natural bent of our selfish hearts.
