Church Strategic Plan

Our Five Strategies                                             
In line with our world church, the REACH strategy for the North American Division encompasses five focus areas that relate to our mission. We aim for excellence in each one.
  • Revival & transformation: A closer walk with God through public and personal worship.
  • Education for discipleship: Every member learning, growing, and becoming more like Christ.
  • Alignment within the Church: Love for Christ and for each other enriches our diverse church family.
  • Community outreach & evangelism: Every member an active and enthusiastic witness for God.
  • Healthy leadership & management: As God’s stewards, we aim to be a “best-run” organization.
