Rare Air

I will spend more time this year than ever before, focusing on where we are as a church body. Based on the stats of this blog, I know there are a good number of readers who do not belong to Trinity, and I appreciate that support so much. However, I absolutely love the place we are in as a church body right now. While we have sold our facility and are praying and searching for the proper location as a church body for us to worship, I just want to share with you what excitement this opportunity is bringing to Trinity. There are few established churches who get the opportunity to reevaluate what they are doing from every aspect, as well as clearly define who they are and where they are going for the foreseeable future. It has been tough to do either of these with a historically inflated membership role and a building which doesn’t serve who we really are very well. Right now, our Strategy Team has worked, and will continue working on everything from our purpose statement, to a new church covenant and doctrinal statement. We will also be working with individual ministries in setting their purpose statement, working on new church by-laws and so many other amazing opportunities. Pray for this team as this will impact how we do missions more effectively, how we can reach our community in a greater way and will set our hearts and eyes in an even more Kingdom focused direction. This is a rare opportunity that should cause excitement in our church body. Please be in prayer for our Strategy Team and overall leadership as we walk through this new phase.   God is up to something at TBC and it is exciting to be a part of it. If you are a member of Trinity and you have questions, suggestions or you have resources or a skill set that can help us in the coming days, please don’t hesitate to e-mail our team at newbuilding@trinitysouthaven.org
