Rejuvenating Our Church Community - Readying Ourselves for Outreach                        
 
Purpose of the Plan

 

This document summarizes the conference’s discussions and its ideas for change. This Plan for the church was intended to not only continue the vision of the original settlers and missionaries in Belize but the work and dedication of the many leaders that will came after. Most of all, it serves the Lord’s purpose to further His Kingdom.

 

In summary, the purpose of the Plan is to:

 

  • better understand who we are as community of believers;

  • understand our relevance and importance in local communities and across Belize;

  • re-examine the mission and vision;

  • examine our strengths, weaknesses and the threats we face;

  • effectively manage the most challenging issues;

  • build on opportunities;

  • articulate where we want to be as a Church over the next five years

  • inform us of the actions local churches, leaders and the Presbytery will take to make the new mission and vision a reality;

  • recommend ideas on how to better include congregants and the surrounding communities in building and growing the church; and,

provide us with an accountability framework whereby we can monitor progress – what does success look like?

Propósito del plan

 

Este documento resume las discusiones de la conferencia y sus ideas para el cambio. Este Plan para la iglesia tiene la intención no solo de continuar la visión de los colonos y misioneros originales en Belice, sino que también el trabajo y la dedicación de los muchos líderes que vendrán después. Sobre todo, sirve al propósito del Señor de promover Su Reino.

 

En resumen, el propósito del Plan es:

 

  • comprender mejor quiénes somos como comunidad de creyentes;

  • comprender nuestra relevancia e importancia en las comunidades locales y en todo Belice;

  • reexaminar la misión y la visión;

  • examinar nuestras fortalezas, debilidades y las amenazas que enfrentamos;

  • gestionar eficazmente los problemas más desafiantes;

  • aprovechar las oportunidades;

  • expresar dónde queremos estar como Iglesia durante los próximos cinco años.

  • informarnos de las acciones que las iglesias locales, los líderes y el presbiterio tomarán para hacer realidad la nueva misión y visión;

  • recomendar ideas sobre cómo incluir mejor a los feligreses y las comunidades circundantes en la construcción y el crecimiento de la iglesia; y,

  • proporcionar un marco de rendición de cuentas mediante el cual podamos monitorear el progreso: ¿cómo se ve el éxito?
