Two Year
Ministry Plan

Matt Williams along with several other staff members, presented a series of ideas that will impact our ministry for the next two years. These ministry initiatives are shaped by our core values, the foundational pillars of discipleship. The plan is called We Choose, because every effective ministry plan centers around strategic choices.
