Strategic Planning
Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

The synod’s Strategic Planning Task Force thanks all who participated in the electronic survey and the conversations at Pre-Assembly Conference meetings, deaneries, and the 2017 Synod Assembly.  The raw data from many of those meetings can be seen below.

The Task Force met on June 19 to review the results of those conversations and surveys and begin to collate them into a future focus and goals for the synod.  That process will continue through the summer months, with a proposal to be presented to the Synod Council in September and shared across the synod in the fall. 

Please keep the Strategic Planning Task Force in your prayers as we seek the Holy Spirit’s wisdom and guidance.

In Christ,

The Southwestern Texas Synod Strategic Planning Task Force
