Thank you for your interest in the Growth & Vitality Initiative! We are excited to take this journey with you and trust that God has wonderful things in store for PVUMC. The Growth & Vitality Initiative is a five-year capital and spiritual campaign to become a church that is widely known as a vibrant center for faith and acceptance.
The Growth & Vitality Initiative has four goals:
Deepen our relationships with Jesus Christ
Gain over 500 new members
Double weekly attendance to 750 people each week
Increase annual giving by $750,000
These goals are big, but we know with God’s help they are possible. Jesus shares with his disciples in John 14 “Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that Id o and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father. I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it.”
We will reach these goals through three key focuses:
ATTRACT By improving our marketing efforts and creating a more invitational culture, we will find ways to bring faith to new people at our church.
ENGAGE By building up our hospitality practices, our connection ministries, and our volunteer engagement, we can ensure more people feel warmly welcomed at PVUMC, with plenty of opportunities to connect with others and with God.
FLOURISH By creating intentional discipleship strategies, we will help keep everyone connected to their own spirituality and our faith community that will naturally turn to witness in our neighborhoods and workplaces.
Please join us in this exciting new direction for PVUMC, a story of renewed growth and spiritual vitality.
