Churchnet approved a new five-year strategic plan for our ministry at our 2015 Annual Gathering. The strategy will give direction to our collaborative ministry as we seek to serve churches and church leaders. The title of our plan is Vision 2020: Engaging the Future with Hope! One of our primary goals to come along side congregations as they seek God’s will for their ministry to provide encouragement and hope. Our four primary initiatives are to:
- Facilitate Mission Collaboration
- Develop Hope-filled Strategies
