CHALLENGES/LEARNING’S To build upon the legacy of our founders, there are three key areas of on-going development (Stories, People and Deeds) –Desire to focus on stories in order to understand where we came from and how to shape the organization today and into the future –Understand that people need to nurture the culture and also be held accountable for living the mission, vision and values in a concrete manner –Recognize that deeds of the individual and organization demonstrate the power of a mission and values well lived
NEXT STEPS Establish ways in which the story of the founding congregations as well as the mission, vision and values lived today continues to shape who we are and what we do Integrate mission, vision and values and ethical tradition into hiring processes through a formalized set of questions Clearly define roles, goals and outcomes for mission teams and leaders in order to bring greater clarity to the sites and the organization as a whole
