St John Adaptive Leadership Team

SALT is an operational team at St John UMC. We live into an L-3 culture - loving, learning, & leading together. On this team, in loving support, will hold each other accountable for spiritual growth, personal piety, and leadership development. We give ourselves to God in worship, prayer, and conversation. We are a leadership team that tackles problems & obstacles to better create a disciple-making faith community/ministry.

We have met for 8 hours, one Saturday a month since May 2018. We have served in covenant together, prayerfully created a Ministry Action Plan for our kingdom community. We are currently in the process of building St John's core ministry leadership teams - the BELONG, BELIEVE, BUILD, and BLESS teams. These teams are the next steps in seeing our Mission and Vision become realities. These teams will continue to follow the L3 process – Loving, Learning, and Leading together.

Each of these teams - the SALT, BELONG, BELIEVE, BUILD, and BLESS teams - would ideally be populated by 12 dedicated, excited Jesus-followers. These people will be committed to bringing transformation to both the church & the community by developing the ministries & strategies to fulfill our Mission & Vision.
