Metropolis Stategic Plan
Our Metropolis is a visionary pioneer in undertaking such a systematic, ambitious and exciting Strategic Planning process.
Start with WHY
Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ gave us His life as an example of how each of us should live. He also gave us His church to nurture and grow. Our Father gives us all of our many other blessings.The question is what will we do with all of these gifts for God’s greater glory and for a righteous life both here and for all of eternity?
Visionaries understand the importance of first creating a clear vision of "Why." It is said that the two most important days of your life are:
- The day you were born; and
- The day you figure out "Why."
Once one knows their "Why" there is no end to the creativity, enthusiasm, energy and dedication they will devote to the achievement of what God has called them to do. Christ clearly communicated the “Why” of His coming to be with us and the “Why” of God's expectations of us. The Apostles understood their "Why" and sacrificed everything to achieve the Lord’s vision. Now, it is our turn.
