Our vision in 2019 is to more strategically engage our people to change the world for good.
God has given St. John the Divine a heart to serve Jesus and help people in need. Many of our parishioners already serve throughout the community. Our vision in 2019 is to prayerfully discern where we are being called to focus our resources and empower all ages to be more engaged in God's call to live beyond ourselves in ways that profoundly impact the community.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor. -- Luke 4:18-19
Our vision is to empower more people in our church family to use their unique gifts to live beyond themselves.
How do we get there?
- Equip our people to see their service work as part of God's bigger picture.
- Help all our parishioners discover ways to serve God in his world through enhanced staffing focused on greater coordination and connection.
- Focus prayer and discernment to discover where God is calling St. John the Divine to become more fully engaged for profound impact.
