Please be in prayer for the Elders as they pray through strategic goals and budget needs for 2023.
While post-pandemic giving did stabilize in 2022, we did not make our projected income goals. We also had some projected expense items that were over-projected. So, the net effect is that our cash position and ability to do ministry is still strong.
Now that we have a better handle on giving patterns, we are working on producing a tighter budget that will allow us to achieve our strategic goals for 2023.
A few things we are already working on:
- Missions/Mobilization Team - We have a team of mission-minded and mission-active individuals who will act as liaisons with our missions partners, make budget recommendations to the Elders, and organize our mission trips.
- Audio-Visual Upgrades - Jimmy Hatcher is taking leadership of the AVL Team and will spearhead our upgrades to modernize our computers and enhance our livestream and recording capabilities.
- With Mike Bizzell's departure, the Elders are looking to add to the Elder Body and to the Staff. So, be in prayer as they seek the right additions.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
