What are the present strengths of St John? in no particular order
Devoted, dedicated Staff – Pastoral (Church) and School (Teachers, Administrators, etc.)
Biblically Sound ministry and teaching in School and Church and consistent for a long time (and good location).
Consistent, Solid Worship – and now some variety and more opportunities with Wednesday evenings.
School and Church cohesiveness (especially evident on Sundays when school is involved.)
What specific things need improvement at St John? (Organizational, Spiritual and Physical): in no particular order.
Volunteer Recruitment – getting more people involved in the ministries (and as leaders) of St John and not just the same people all the time.
Simplify Structure – Organizational structure needs review and possible changes to make things more efficient and manageable. (Clear job descriptions, review constitution and by-laws, effective policies and procedures, reorganize boards or teams to reflect requirements of running St John.)
Better Communication of Needs – there is many things that need to get done, need improvement or repair or other needs that come up – how can we better communicate these needs to the whole congregation so that people can help out?
Improve Our Reach – In-Reach, How we are caring for our members both active and inactive. (member care, school to church communication, inactive members, etc) and Out-Reach, How we reach out to School families and Local Community. (community involvement, Evangelism and Missions, use of facilities for community activities especially gym)
Physical – Parking Lot redone, Update of Worship area (remodel, repair, new lighting, new sound system, add video system) and other repairs and updates to our present campus.
Bible Study – more opportunities to study God's Word (Men's and Women's groups, small groups, community Bible studies) and more people involved not just on Sunday.
