What: A group of disciples gathered from the congregation who show vision for LMC and have agreed to work through a prayerful process to discern LMC’s mission and vision that God in Christ is calling us to through 2020.
How: These task force members, who showed interest and promise through the Fall 2014 Cottage Meetings, are working with the Council and Pr. David Misenheimer (through Kairos & Associates) to listen, advise, pray, and articulate some central themes of how LMC is being called to minister and operate.
When: The task force has had an initial meeting to lay groundwork, as well as a follow-up brainstorming meeting that built off of the energy of the first meeting. The task force plans to meet again in April to further refine what we’re discerning, and may meet as many as six more times. The next step after our April gathering is to go to the congregation to hear your feedback on what we’re discerning. Everyone has a voice in this process.
Future: The council, through the Fall of 2014, went through a vetting process with Capital Firms who also specialized in leading congregations through visioning work. We narrowed our search down to three, conducted interviews, and landed on Kairos and Associates. We began work with them directly before Easter. With this process we will also begin exploring a new logo and other materials to streamline the message God has put in our hearts. You’ll be both hearing more and invited to lend your voice to the process soon!
