The Pastor's Perspective

Re-envision 2019.jpg

So a couple of months back I mentioned that, “a Reenvision Team was being recruited and assembled to take on the task of creating a new Vision & Campus masterplan for our church,” and that “exciting things were in the works with continued updates coming regularly.” 

Well here you go with one of those ‘updates’ – this past Sunday evening at our April Church Conference the church unanimously affirmed the names of seven individuals who are to comprise that Reenvision Team!  Our Nominating Team was presented a pool of eighteen names in order to create a Team of seven to serve. Our staff and church leaders submitted name possibilities according to balanced demographic representation of our church:  male/female, old/young, longtime/newer church members, etc.  The names were thoroughly prayed over, and then contacted by the Nominating Team to see if the individuals were willing to serve.

Those who agreed have been given a job description and will be working closely with myself, our staff, & church leaders. They will have 3-4 meetings now, break for Summer, then resume meeting in September with hopes of having Presentations ready for the church in October. The purpose of this Reenvision Team will be to assist in developing a renewed vision and campus masterplan for FBC Salado with specific goals for each phase of development. The team’s task essentially will be to create a “roadmap” for the church – who we are going to be and what we are going to be about – in the next 5-7 years.

It’s a tricky task (creating something out of something you can’t see yet) so as these individuals have prayerfully agreed to serve, please begin lifting them up in prayer regularly, yourself.  And use this Word from Isaiah as the foundation of your prayer work: 

I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them.” (Isaiah 42:16)

Spring is upon us (the wildflowers along the Interstate through Salado have been amazing!) and as the Seasons are changing new growth is happening both in and out of our church.  He is making us “alive together with Christ!” (Eph 2:5)  What part of your life needs His Hand at work?  And where might His Hand lead you to do the same for someone else?

Go love, Church!
