Ministry Description This is a new full time position during which both the pastor and the congregation will continuously evaluate the progress being made toward meeting the stated goals of this ministry. The evaluation process to be used would be developed by both parties prior to acceptance of this position. Primary goals for this time: • Implementation of the goal chosen by the congregation, with our consultant, Paul Nickerson, for Revitalization\Relaunch of the church which includes a possible repurpose of the church building. • Continuity in worship, pastoral care, outreach, education and exploration of faith. • Providing opportunities for continuing discussion of the impact of our decision to reach out for growth. • Administrative leadership especially in working with social media The discernment process started in June of 2017 with Consultant, Paul Nickerson, is the most important mission we are involved in currently. Small group discussions have been held to prayerfully consider an option. This process is so full of hope. It needs a guiding hand of love, faith and trust. The congregation, at a special meeting, voted to embark on a path of “turnaround & relaunch and building reuse which is being initiated with the assistance of Paul Nickerson.” Twenty members attended a daylong session “How to Reach New People” conducted by Paul in February.
