We first met with LCEF (Lutheran Church Extension Fund) a year ago to begin the Ministry Clarity Process to help Immanuel look forward in faith. After many congregation meetings, surveys, meeting with ministry leaders and pastoral staff, we have prepared a Vision Statement to help us plan the next 3-5 years at Immanuel:
We are a family of believers equipped to enrich our communities for Christ.
The 4 Targets we will be using to guide us are:
- Assimilation (how we grow as a family of believers)
- Stewardship (how we care for what God have given us, not only our resources but our buildings and campus)
- Outreach (how we reach out to our St. Charles community and beyond)
- Discipleship (how we grow in our relationship with God)
Please read over our Ministry Plan below and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of the pastors, principals or staff.
