Imagine St. Andrew’s in 2048. What do you see? Your vestry considered that question as we embarked on a process of strategic planning in the wake of the 2016 campus fires. Through our vigorous discussions, a vision of St. Andrew’s future emerged – a North Star to guide the path ahead. To assit us in making our dreams reality, we engaged the services of an architecture firm and a capital campaign consultant.
In the exploratory phase with domusstudio, we'll learn how updated, expanded, or replaced facilities might reflect our vision. Likewise, TriUnity consulting will help us determine whether we're ready for a capital campaign to support our goals. This exciting season holds many opportunities for parishioners and concerned stakeholders to participate in the process of discovery. We will only move forward with specific projects when we've collaboratively decided the best course of action for the congregation and our neighboring community. At the very least, we'll determine the ideal location for the Friendship House replacement. To get a sense of the work we’ve done so far, here are a couple of key documents for review. We invite you to join us in dreaming big as we answer God’s call to fulfill St. Andrew’s mission in a hungry world.
This diagram encapsulates the idea that we believe our journey of discipleship calls us to do more than just worship together on Sundays. Rather, our vision has us living into other areas as well, including Learning Collaboratively, Serving Others, and Building Community.
