Strategies are structured plans that are designed to achieve a desired outcome or goal. Strategies are made up of specific Actions. If we were seeking incremental change, we could begin right away with the development of strategies and actions without regard to our core beliefs and behaviors. But to make sure we are engaged in strategies and actions that really matter, we are constantly aligning them with our core beliefs and behaviors and aiming them at our goals.

On September 13, by far most of the strategies we identified had to do with our building and location (23), while others had to do with increasing financial health (6), youth ministry (4), growth (3), worship (3), marketing (2), and other ministries. The complete list that is attached below. 

On Sunday, we categorized these into four main areas, each of which will be addressed by a new ministry group in the church:
  1. Identity and Mission
  2. Locate New Space
  3. Sale of Property
  4. Healthy Stewardship
In coming days and weeks, these ministry groups will take shape and begin their work in earnest.
