Strategic Re-Visioning

Scott Ball, the Malphurs GroupThe Fellowship worked with Scott Ball from The Malphurs Group to take a look at our church's strengths, weaknesses, and prayerfully determine the vision for the future of our church. This process occurred over a seven-month period with the Strategic Leadership Team (SLT).

Though the formal process has completed, a number of Implementation Teams were formed, which continue to work on improvements and creating sustainable systems we can rely on as the church grows.  The Implementation Teams are:

  • Communications
  • Community Outreach
  • Congregational Mobilization
  • Creativity & Innovation
  • Disciple Making
  • Facilities & Setting
  • Finance & Stewardship
  • Leadership Development
  • Prayer
  • Staffing

Please be in Prayer for the continued revitalization of The Fellowship!


Information from each of the formal sessions are below.

Session 1 (April 28 & 29, 2017)


Session 2 (June 2 & 3, 2017): Mission & Values

    • Setting Review -- Scott presented these results of an audit the Malphurs Group had done of our facility in April.  (Scott did note that several of these issues had been fixed already.)  (PDF Version)

    We wrapped up with a workshop where each Implementation Team developed a Vision Statement, culminating in a time of prayer for our church. 

    The next step is for the Elders to use the IT's Vision statements to develop a church-wide Vision statement.
