Five-Year Strategic Plan
The initial strategic plan for Covenant Church was developed between December 1999 and June 2001, and was presented to the congregation in July 2001. That plan served us well in defining Covenant's core values, mission, vision, and long-term ministry aspirations; and provided a source of focus and direction that led to numerous changes and improvements in structure, staffing, process, and ministries prioritization.
In short, that initial strategic plan was instrumental in bringing Covenant Church to a new level of excellence.
However, much has changed since 2001: growth in the church body, greater ethnic/cultural diversity, stronger and more focused missions outreach, and many changes in ministry focus, staffing, and administrative structure. Accordingly, church leaders determined the need to look closely at the vision and direction of Covenant Church for the next five years, and determine how best to get where it needs to go.
The process began with the formation of an Ad Hoc Committee to address the following questions about Covenant Church:
- Who are we?
- Where are we going?
- What will we look like when we get there?
- What are the motivating principles behind ministry at Covenant Church?
