Transition Team (TT)

Transition Team: Jessica Allen (recorder), Sara Carmichael, Curt Eckley, Karin Eklof, Scott Lester (communications liaison), Brett Nelson (chair), Sue-Z Trudell

The Transition Team is responsible for the development of a Ministry Site Profile (MSP), which is a “snapshot” of who we are as a congregation and where we see God calling us in our next chapter of ministry.

To develop the MSP, the Transition Team examines the congregation’s identity, core values, mission, and ministry.

They do this in conversation with the congregation – in a variety of ways – to receive both input and to give feedback.

It is an open and transparent review and assessment of:
• Who we are
• Where we have been
• Who God is calling us to be
• What God is calling us to do in our next chapter of ministry
