Vision For Ministry
As part of the hiring process, I needed to write up my vision for ministry and submit it to the board of the para-church organization. Here it is.
Short Term Vision
Continue Tuesday Night Rec Program
Continue various weekly bible studies in central locations (McDonalds, etc)
Continue and expand the After-School Program
Continue building the network of Williamson Youthworkers’ through monthly breakfasts
Continue building a community-wide fellowship group for High School Girls
Continue working with the pastors who sit on the Fellowship of Churches to equip, encourage and support healthy youth ministry throughout the community
Continue plugging students in to healthy, active youth ministries (I currently have students involved in 6 local youth groups)
Long term Vision
Begin a Skating Ministry
Begin a Summer Feeding Program
Offer training opportunities for volunteer youth leaders in the community
I found it interesting (and encouraging!!) to take a look at what I’m already doing. The work I’ve done these past several years looks more like para-church than church based ministry. Further confirmation that I’m on the right path with this transition. It also makes me thankful, once again, to have worked for a church that is so invested in doing ministry outside the church walls.
