For the last several months Asbury’s Strategic Planning Team (Pastor Kip, Pastor Matt, Nathan Grau, Tina Jackson, and Cindy Nelson) have been working toward the development of a plan for the future of our ministry together at Asbury. The Commit Campaign emerged from this work with the goal of generating a strategic plan to help us align our mission in ministry with our vision to be a community that is experiencing life change and growth because of Jesus.
Below, you will find a link to the first draft of the Commit Campaign Strategic Plan. It outlines the team’s recommended goals to guide us over the next five years in our ministry at Asbury. These goals emerged after prayerful consideration and many hours of conversation with the congregation, leadership, and the Strategic Planning Team and we are excited about the hopes, dreams, and opportunities expressed by the people of Asbury throughout this process.
You are invited to read through this first-draft proposal and we are asking for further input to help in the refinement of the plan as we continue to work toward the development and adoption of a final draft. To leave feedback about what is in this draft of the Commit Campaign Strategic Plan, you are invited to use the comment form found here by Sunday, June 11, 2023.
Comments will be considered as a part of our conversation about the plan as part of Asbury’s Administrative Council meeting on Thursday, June 15. From there, the Strategic Planning Team will adapt and adjust the plan in the creation of a proposed final draft to be presented to the Administrative Council on Thursday, July 6 for adoption.
We want to thank all who have contributed to this process through participation in congregational meetings, individual conversations, and prayer over the last several months. We also would like to thank the Strategic Planning Team for their hard work behind the scenes in helping us discern where to focus our time and energy as we envision the next 3-5 years of our ministry together at Asbury.
