This morning the elders and pastors at Parkview completed a retreat time with Aubrey Malphurs, a church strategist from Dallas Seminary. One of our goals to was evaluate our mission, vision, and strategy as a church. It was a very encouraging time that challenged us and made us realize that we need to re-examine some of the core-values that drive our strategic decision making process.
As I expected, this retreat was not an end, but a beginning. The good news is that we are all unified and excited about what lies ahead. Thanks to all of you who were praying for this retreat. I now ask that you continue to pray as the process moves forward. Pray that the meetings continuing over the next several weeks would be fruitful in moving us forward, and that all our efforts will be lead by the Lord.
