We Choose

Two Year
Ministry Plan

Our We Choose ministry initiative is shaped by our Core Values, the foundational pillars of discipleship. It also represents the strategic way we budget, allocate, discuss, raise, and spend resources in a manner that will help us accomplish the mission God has given us. We are excited to share these updates of how we have seen discipleship in the context of community flourish through our current We Choose plan—check back soon for our new 2022-2023 Ministry Plan!
