Mission Discovery

GRACE is an effort to retool their missions strategy and the first step in that was to engage 1615 for an initial 'discovery' session. There was a lot to that first meeting that was valuable including:
+ most of the decision makers came to the meeting.
+ unfiltered discussion on the positives and the negatives of our current state of missions.
+ 1615 requires the elder team and lead pastor to be engaged and they gave valuable insight.
+ review of SNAPshots - Struggle, Notable, Alarm, Possibilities.
+ "The job of a coach is to ask the right questions." - love that.

Retooling could be chaotic, painful and bumpy. Part of that is the nature of organizational lifecycles - lasting organizations require constant innovation and reinvention around a core DNA. In the end, it will be worth it.
