Last week I explained the purpose and nature of the ministry study Calvin Church will be engaged in. This week I offer a graphic explanation (see below).
Those wanting to know what the study will "produce" can see from the above that a ample data about the congregation and the community will be collected. The Session will then gather to discern a Vision Statement and Mission Strategies. All of this will be used when the church's Ministry Information Form (MIF) is written, the form used when the search for a new pastor begins.
