The Case Statement:
Church Organizations come in different flavors, models and styles. There are those who are known for worship. There are those whose focus is simply education. There are those whose focus is serving. There are also those who are known for focussing their efforts on reaching the lost. All of these are represented in the St. Croix and are indispensable to the cause of Christ.
Trinity Hudson’s past and present point to a future that will take its place in the “menu” of Community ministry, as a church organization that is known for it’s solid spiritual growth path and its loving way of making disciples who will lead next generations. A disciple puts Jesus first in all things, follows His teachings, bears fruit, loves others and serves the world.
Purpose (Mission): What are we trying to do?
Vision: How are we going to do that on a day-to-day basis?
Core Values: What drives our day-to-day operations?
Strategies: What are some ways in which we accomplish our Purpose and Vision?
Indicator of Success:
A Narrative (based on the above statements):
Our purpose is to make disciples of all nations. We do that by loving God, loving others and serving the world. Throughout the life of our church organization, we play out our calling through Missional Momentum, Personal Transformation, Inspirational Worship, Foundational Faith, Relational Connection and Global Compassion.
As a church organization and as individuals, we are committed to several ways of making decisions, structuring our ministry and reaching out to those who don’t know Christ. One way is that we put the priority on outsiders over insiders. When thinking about structuring for spiritual growth, we design simple and clear steps before we put together yet another program. As individuals, we invest in the lives of people we know, always looking for an opportunity to invite them to take next steps toward being a follower of Christ.
We know we are succeeding at what God is calling us to do when we see God making positive life changes in the people with whom we interact.
