South Fork overview

Our current transition has given us wonderful opportunity for prayer and self-reflection. We pray that  God will guide South Fork to be a strategic church bringing glory to Him and advancing His Kingdom. 

Our observations:


WHAT WE DO WELL :

  • Welcoming church
  • Dedicated to preaching and teaching the Gospel
  • Fellowship
  • Sense of family
  • Getting done what needs to be done
  • Christian education (over 60% of worshipers attend Sunday school)
  • Missions (commitment to over 20% of budget) 
  • Retain relationships with past ministers and members
  • Utilize various types of media (In house and social) 
  • Open to accept change when it is explained
  • Servant attitude among leadership

WHAT WE DO THAT NEEDS IMPROVEMENT: 

  • Intentional welcoming ministry
  • Community outreach – having a presence in communities where we live
  • Follow up with  visitors and absentees from worship services  
  • Seeking a part-time youth minister  
  • Upgrade technology (Internet service challenges given rural location) 
  • Intentional disciple-making/mentoring of new members
  • Engagement with missions we support (regular communication, visiting on site, etc.)
