The Healthy Church Initiative is a process designed to transform churches by providing resources and strategies. Walnut Hills UMC is actively participating in this initiative, meeting with coaches who have helped strengthen what it means to be a Walnut Hills member through a series of consultations. We are focusing on five areas:
- Offering a variety of activities for further spiritual development;
- Creating a behavioral covenant;
- Identifying, equipping and deploying leaders and servants;
- Developing a comprehensive stewardship plan; and
- Improving communication.
These areas of emphasis are allowing us to focus on leading people to actively follow Jesus.
