Natural Church Development

In 2009, a "Forward Planning Committee" was formed to continue the process started some years earlier which followed the "Natural Church Development" format.  The opinions of various segments of the church population are examined to ascertain through a formal process the priorities of the church in various well-defined aspects of church life.  The committee acts for a relatively short time period, but its work is valuable only if, several years later, the priorities of the congregation are re-assessed in a similar process using different individuals to measure progress in these specific areas.
