The Denton Project

September 6, 2008 at 2:56 pm (mission, restart, vision)

Hey Friends!

What are we going to do? I have got that question a few times over the last few days, and I hope I didn’t seem like a mindless idiot when I really didn’t give you an answer. I am developing plans and intentions for this project, but didn’t want to commit to anything before I knew it was going to happen. Let me explain some of my thought processes so that you can understand how I am thinking.

ECEF’s Denton Project is a restart project. We are going to totally revamp and restart the ministry of the church in Denton. This will mean building a vision and mission for the church, and building our programming and events to facilitate our mission and accomplish our vision. This means that some things may change over the next couple of months:

– Our name may change. We may want to reflect our vision/mission in the most visible aspect of us.
– Some old programs may stop and new ones begin. We are going to build our programs from our mission/vision, not our mission/vision from our programs.
– Some things we currently do may be put on hold to focus on more important aspects of our ministry so that they can be done to the best of our ability.

But I am not going to make these decisions on my own. I want all of you to be a part of this process. So please be ready to contribute to the discussion and open-minded about how to proceed forward in faith!

When all is said and done, we will be a church who is serving Jesus, loving others, and growing in numbers and discipleship! Join me on this journey!

Yours for the Pursuit of God in the Company of Friends,
Billy Johnson
