MINISTRY ACTION PLAN


A Vision for a Faith-filled Future

Springdale Mennonite Church

 

 

This Ministry Action Plan was approved by the Springdale congregation on July 22, 2012. The following five themes are meant to guide our ministry into the future.

 

Theme 1:  Cultivate an Environment for Spiritual Growth

  • Pray together
  • Reach out to share and receive the love of Christ with the community
  • Increase opportunities to study the Word together
  • Provide loving accountability to one another for spiritual growth

  

Theme 2:  Build our Ministry with Youth and Young Adults

  • Hire a coordinator for ministries involving children, youth, young adults and young families (full-time position, 2-year initial term, funded ½ through bequest money and ½ through budget)

  


Theme 3:  Grow our Ministry in our Local Community

  • Partner with other organizations or initiate new ministries (i.e., WARM, Love INC, Disciples’ Kitchen)
  • Encourage ministry projects by congregational groups (funded by existing Community Mission Fund as needed)

  


Theme 4:  Increase Springdale’s Visibility within the Community

  • Update church signs
  • Increase use of the church website

  


Theme 5:  Explore Ways to Nourish Creativity and Flexibility in our Ministry and Life Together

 

  • Rework church structure/bylaws to allow for creativity and flexibility
  • Empower commissions to lead and make decisions within their various areas of ministry
  • Allow space for small group involvement and initiative

 

 

This is a congregational plan. It will only come to life and fulfill its purpose as it is lived out in each of us!!
