In early 2010 the Riverside Leadership Team assembled a team of people to serve on a Long Range Planning Team. The Team was intended to be diverse in their length of time as a part of Riverside, current Riverside involvement, gender, life experiences, age, and other similar characteristics.
The Long Range Planning Team consisted of Kelly Blanchard, Jan Fisher, Luci Keazer, Everette Mills, Erin Rush, Amber Stanley, Dan Teefey, Dave Timmerman, Jen Tucker, John Umbeck, and Becky Wellner.
The Team prayerfully committed to its mission:
“To assess the current gifts and growth areas of Riverside, to suggest strategies that will help develop Riverside’s God-given individuality and call, and to ultimately articulate a vision and path towards sustainable spiritual momentum that changes lives in Tippecanoe County.”
The Long Range Planning Team devoted over a year of their time to these important tasks. The Team combined its varied experience, talents, perspectives and passions to help Riverside be a church that glorifies God in all that we do. We are excited to share the attached Final Report as the culmination of the Team’s collective efforts.
Many of the Report’s objectives have already begun to be implemented this year and the others are being discussed by the Riverside Leadership Team and Staff. As always, please do not hesitate to contact the Riverside Leadership Team or Pastor Dan if you have any questions.
