St. John Transition Team Overview

St. John is entering an intentional interim period and forming a Transitional Task Force (TTF) to take a look at who we are and who we want to be as we move forward.  The Transition Task Force is not a Call Committee.  We will not be forming a Call Committee until this work is close to completion.   The Transition Task Force will be divided into three Focus Teams:  a Mission/Vision Team, a Self-Study Team, and a Staffing Needs Team.  


Interim Facilitator Denise Hanson, along with Interim Pastor Paul Svingen, will lead the process and guide the work of the group.  Robin Abraham has agreed to serve as Recording Secretary and Council President Jim Langel will be Ex-Officio.  Thank you to those who agreed to serve on the Transition Task Force!
