Thank you for your prayers and support as we continue to work through our time of transition together. As previously mentioned, the initial priorities that Pastor John Prociuk recommend that the Elders address were to:
- Refresh or renew Bethany Chapel’s purpose / vision statement, and
- Clarify the roles and responsibilities of leadership, especially that of the Pastoral Staff and Elders.
Progress has been made on both fronts with the Elders and Pastoral Staff holding a visioning day, a small governance working team has been struck, and the Elders clearly defining roles and responsibilities using a classification scheme called a RACI (Responsible, Accountable, Consulted and Informed).
Currently the Deacons, Pastoral Staff, and the Transition Advisory Committee (TAC) are reviewing some of the work completed and are providing feedback to the Elders.
You are invited to participate in a Congregation Conversation on Sunday, February 25th at 7 PM when Pastor John Prociuk and the Elders will provide more detail of the work being done and share the direction of next steps in the transition.
