Mission and Vision Team
In late 2015, the Calvary Vestry formed a Mission and Vision Team to design a process to accomplish the following:
· Envision where Calvary wants to be in three to five years
· Develop plans and goals for reaching that reality
· Support the church in achieving those goals
The team conducted a Parish Survey and held focus groups to gain valuable input. Using Calvary’s Mission Statement and Core Values as a foundation, the team collectively identified three Strategic Priorities. Welcome and Embrace (being a welcoming church), Forming Disciples (how we grow in Faith), and Into the Community (Mission).
‘Goal teams’ were established to develop goals supporting the three priorities. Some of these goals are extensions of work already underway, and some of the goals are brand new to Calvary. The teams draw on the congregation for support in reaching their objectives, and it is through the coming together of the congregation that progress is being made towards fulfilling the goals, and ultimately, making the Vision Calvary’s reality. The structure of the Mission and Vision Team can be seen below
