As 2022 comes to a close, our Leadership Team spends a day reflecting on our 2022 Priorities, Strategies, and Quarterly Goals and envisions our 2023 direction.

Strategic planning is using the discernment given to us by God to make the best use of our gifts and opportunities. It aligns our goals with his plans. We share our yearly priorities with our Team so everyone knows our direction and what success looks like. 

In defining next year’s Priorities, we start with a quote from Eugene Peterson:

“The task is not to get God to do something I think needs to be done, but to become aware of what God is doing so that I can respond to it and participate and take delight in it.”

All of our Priorities statements should begin with ‘If God Wills…’

This means we have the power to persist, work hard, and allow the work of the Holy Spirit to be stronger than our own personal agenda. In the end, we recognize that it is all ours to steward well.
