On July 1st our Senior Leadership Team shared four areas of focus for the next 12-18 months. The third of these concerns Leadership Investment.
At Grace Church our Leadership Team is very much a work in progress and an area of Church life which we are particularly investing time, energy, and resources.
This evolution includes the following steps together:
Phil Annetts, Stu Alred, Rob Willmott and Jon Bishop have formed an ‘Acting Senior Leadership Team’.
Ben Homer is now on staff ‘full time’ giving him an additional day to work on and support our pastoral projects.
Dan Roach has been appointed Chair of our Stewardship Team. (Trustees)
Fi Salter is taking the lead with our Pastoral Support Team.
Stu will be starting a part time MA in Theology at Trinity College Bristol.
Jo Todd has ‘finished her season’ as children’s worker after a superb contribution with us.
Dave Bish is working with us until early Summer 2016. He and his family are exploring new opportunities for ministry elsewhere.
We have a superb team of hardworking and humble leaders and I expect us to grow together in depth and breadth over the coming months. Supporting, empowering and investing in our leadership will be a particular area of focus for Grace Church in the next 12 months.
