The Transitional Task Force (TTF) would like to welcome you to our new online meeting space! We wanted to create a space to discuss ideas, changes, and motions coming before the Presbytery. This blog will be maintained by the TTF and discussions will be managed by a variety of people, depending on the reason for the discussion.
For this, our first blog post, we want share some specifics about the transitional work that is ahead of us. For the next six months, the TTF will focus our energy and attention on building a culture of trust by:
Presenting a clear structure for the Presbytery
Crafting a model for Presbytery meetings
Engaging the community in mission
Creating a communication plan
Developing relationships with specialized ministers
Partnering with our seminaries
We realize these six areas are fairly comprehensive and we have identified several specifics tasks toward accomplishing this work. Now, we want to hear from you. What do you think about these six areas? What area is most interesting to you and why? How would you pray for these focus areas? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
And before we sign off – our moderator, David Hallgren has reconstituted the former Leadership Transition Team to be a search committee for our nex Executive Director. Please say a prayer for their work!
In just a few days, we will celebrate the coming of Jesus to live and love in our world. Might we trust that God continues to live and love in our world today through our work and worship together. Merry Christmas!
