Strategic Planning

Saint Thomas Church has begun Strategic Planning work with Wellspring Consulting. Together, as a parish family, we will take a broad look at where we are and where we want to be in the future.

In particular, these three critical questions need to be answered:

  • How do we grow our membership?
  • How do we cease the excess draw on our endowments?
  • And, how do we secure the long-term financial viability of the choir school?

Latest News

Wellspring has interacted with over 200 parishioners through a variety of channels. The Strategic Planning Working Group is beginning it's review of the Choir School (Module 4). In late December we will be emailing an online survey to parishioners. There will be more parish gatherings in the new year. Thank you to all who have participated in process thus far.

More Information

A Strategic Planning Working Group has been formed to work along side Wellspring to develop a united vision for the next 5-10 years. We will be gathering input from you, fellow parishioners and friends, and we need your help. Over the course of the next weeks and months surveys will be sent out, small groups of members and friends will meet, and parish wide gatherings will take place. This Strategic Planning initiative, something that has not been undertaken before at Saint Thomas Church, needs your input and your comments.

Please join us in this important project and let your voice be heard!

A detailed timeline has been established. We expect the project to be completed by late spring of 2019. It will be presented to the Development Committee and the Vestry for approval.

We thank the many members and friends who continue to generously support the parish and choir school in myriad ways.
