Statement of Why
Why do we exist? We must be able to articulate why we exist and why anyone should want to be a part of our Church.
At the first Strategic Planning Retreat, the Planning Team brainstormed over 95 specific strategic items they felt addressed the Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats and were consistent with the Core Values, focused on the Mission and helped achieve the Vision. After many hours of discussions, the Planning Team consolidated the 95+ items and organized them into 11 Strategic Areas of Focus and formed Strategic Task Forces to systematically consolidate and address the items in each Strategic Area. From that point, the 95+ items actually became our 34 Goals, with 28 of them specifically focused on direct improvement of our parishes.
What’s the Schedule?
Each Task Force developed their best ideas of the timelines for each goal during the Planning Process. All of the Strategic Planning Teams are committed to producing the highest quality product in lieu of keeping strictly to the schedule.
