In order to have a more active, influential, and productive team to assist the parishes in our cluster to move forward with Unleashing the Gospel, we have re-structured what used to be called Parish Council into a Cluster Visioning Team and accompanying Action Teams.
The Cluster Visioning Team consists of the pastor, some staff members, and seven other persons from the Cluster Community—representing both parishes. From those seven, a chair, co-chair, and secretary will serve 3-year terms and rotate up and out.
Currently the seven representatives are: Vance Jones, Brother Louie Zant, Karen Griffin, Jeff McMichael, Demetria Blair, Marcella Verdun, and Tim Cholyway.
The Cluster Visioning Team will meet on Thursday evenings in January, May, and September each year to set short-term, achievable goals which will be carried out via the leadership of the Action Teams.
There are four Action Teams:
- Sunday Experience ~ what people experience when they show up on Sunday
- Encounter ~ meeting Jesus Christ anew each day
- Grow ~ going higher and deeper in relationship with the Holy Trinity
- Witness ~ telling our faith story and encouraging others to discover and share theirs
If you are interested in being on an Action Team, please do join in by connecting with anyone on the CVT.
