“A Family Story”: Last Sunday more than 100 leaders of Spring Valley Baptist Church gathered to hear a report entitled God’s Empowering Vision for Spring Valley Baptist Church: A Foundation. It is not a new strategy. It is not a new vision. It is the public beginning of a new spiritual and strategic journey for this congregation which first gathered for worship in 1978.
Participants were invited to offer in writing three positive actions the church ought to take as a result of the report they received. Out of these responses the church staff—who initiated this process of transition and change leading to transformation—met on Monday morning and developed three recommendations for immediate action. Check out the video at https://vimeo.com/338289933 where the pastor, Robert Winburn, announces the initial actions. It is a call to action and a family story that by Fall may have a major impact on the life and ministry of this congregation.
