Long Range Planning
This team is led by the Ministry Team Leader and the Senior Pastor. Participants on this team will be restricted to active members of the church who possess leadership abilities and significant influence within the congregation.
The purpose of this ministry is to discover God’s unfolding vision for our congregation and to seek its effective implementation. It is a community of committed, godly leaders seeking God’s best for the church’s present and future.
The activities of this team include, but are not limited to, the following actions:
- To pray faithfully as individuals and as a team for God’s direction for the church and the fulfillment of His will.
- To create the urgency for positive change within the congregation at key moments and to monitor the change process sensitively.
- To monitor the spiritual and relational vitality of the congregation at all times and to create ministry programs, if and when necessary, to maintain or improve that vitality.
- To discern God’s vision for the church and to determine the vision path, i.e., the specific ways God wants us to do ministry. It is understood that this will need to be updated and adjusted from time to time as we follow God’s leading.
- To communicate effectively God’s unfolding vision to the congregation itself and obtain its enthusiastic support.
- To identify and empower leaders of positive change within the church and work for their success.
- To implement God’s vision for the church throughout the congregation’s ministries.
- To help align all of the church’s ministries and programs with God’s vision for it.
On September 22, 2013, George Bullard, a Congregational and Denominational Strategic Leadership Coach and President of The Columbia Partnership, visited KRBC for a “fresh eyes” assessment of our congregation. The report from that visit has been received. Teams have been formed and are actively addressing his suggestions. George will be coaching us for the next few months as we move toward becoming the church God wants us to be. If you would like a copy of the full report, please contact the KRBC office.
