RESOURCE our Ministry
Discover and develop resources to support the ministry of the congregation.
Knowing, Showing, and Growing
In order to measure effectiveness and impact of our ministries, we need to understand
who we are and what resources we have, and communicate that clearly within the congregation and, where appropriate, to the
community. Assessing such things as church finances, membership statistics, and current demographics of congregation and community
will help us appreciate how God has gifted us so we can build on our strengths.
Objective: To accurately
assess and effectively communicate the human and financial resources of our congregation and grow those resources in meaningful
and measurable ways.
Focus Area: Sharing in Outreach
Outreach giving and service
opportunities are vital aspects of Black Rock’s identity. Because our own resources are strained, we want to connect
our community to the ministries we support, finding ways to invite and involve our neighbors. People who are not part of a
church are seeking opportunities to make a difference in the world. Our heritage of caring for “the least of these”
can help us reach and assist those who yearn to serve.
Objective: To educate ourselves and our community
about our outreach programs and ministries and provide greater opportunity for people to become involved.
