The Steps to Launching TheCHURCH at Tillamook
Step One: Set the Foundation
July / August 2017
In July and August, we began holding weekly “Mission Vision Values Meetings” with our leadership team in Tillamook; talking through who we are, why we’re here, and where we are going. During these meetings we walked through strategic details of team building, service planning, outreach and more.
Step Two: Build the Team
Throughout September we've continued to gather every week for our "Mission Vision Values Meeting" with the leadership team. This helps keep us on course and on mission as more people come onto the team.
September 10th Interest Gathering
At this gathering we invited people from the community to come experience who we are, why we are here, where we are going, as well as discover the role they can play. We had worship, a message about our mission, talked about ways to connect, and enjoyed some Pizza and Ice Cream afterword.
September 17th Team Meeting
We had a meeting with our core leadership team and everyone from the Interest Gathering that wanted to find out more about TheCHURCH and the roles they could play. We talked them through our mission, vision, values. We described our ministry departments and begin the process of building ministry teams and placing people in the body of TheCHURCH.
September 24th Begin Weekly Sunday Gatherings
On September 24th we began holding weekly gatherings every Sunday at Tillamook High School. Our focus is developing our first impressions team, have an impacting service, and incredible kids ministry. As we gather each week we will be inviting people to be a part of the mission and vision by helping them find their place to serve, plugging them into our weekly meetings and training events.
Step Three: Establish the Core
October / November / December 2017
From the time we launch our weekly services, we will continue to gather our growing leadership team for our weekly "Mission Vision Values Meetings". This will build community, competence, and keep us on mission as our core leadership departments continues to grow.
We will continue our weekly Sunday gatherings. Putting our focus on casting vision, reaching new people, building teams, and equipping the core to grow in faith as well as numbers.
Step Four: Launch The CHURCH
On January 14th we will host our New Year Launch Party. Even though we will have been meeting for several months, this will be the actual official launch of TheCHURCH at Tillamook Campus.
We can’t wait to see what God does in the lives of people in the Tillamook Bay Area!!!!
