St. Columba’s Got Vision

St. Columba’s Got Vision

In Fall 2018, St. Columba’s convened Committee on Mission, Vision and Strategic Planning to evaluate the Church’s programs, ministries and parish life, formulate a statement of Mission and Core Values, and develop a Vision for St. Columba’s that would facilitate strategic planning. Our goal was to engage parishioners, congregational leaders, clergy, and staff in an honest appraisal of St. Columba’s current strengths and weaknesses, and inspire all stakeholders at the Church to reflect upon how God is calling us to grow.
