Focus: our vision, mission, values
by Jay Makowski
Chair, Ministry Audit Team
Prescription 1 of our Vital Church Initiative report addresses the alignment of UUMC's vision, mission and values. Item B states, “The pastor, in consultation with the coach, will recruit a Ministry Audit Team of 3-4 people by April 30, 2017, to do the following:
1. Evaluate all ministries to determine their alignment with the vision, mission and values.
2. All ministries not in alignment by December 31, 2017 will be celebrated and dissolved at that time."
Pastor Bills started this process by asking Lisa Berg, Peter Berg, W. Winston Chu and Jay Makowski to form the Ministry Audit Team. In the current process, we are asking everyone who leads a ministry group to fill out the “VCI Ministry Audit Team Initial Survey.” The survey can be found online atwww.surveymonkey.com/r/G5S6WPC. If you would rather fill out a paper copy of the survey, you may obtain one at the church office. Please return completed surveys to Jay Makowski’s church mailbox.
This survey is simply an initial assessment of all ministries at UUMC. It is not anything final or binding. Once information is gathered and reviewed, the Ministry Audit Team may do a secondary, more in-depth survey, and may meet with individual ministry groups. This will be used in evaluating ministries to determine their alignment with our vision, mission and values.
If you have questions or need help with the survey, contact Jay (email@example.com), Lisa (firstname.lastname@example.org), Peter (email@example.com) or Winston (firstname.lastname@example.org).
