President’s Report 2014
“We must align our heart and our plans with God’s…. We know that God’s heart and plan is for the harvest; so, we must align everything in our movement (structures, systems, resources, polity, decisions, etc.) to the finishing of The Great Commission.”
Those words provided the viewpoint of President Glenn Burris Jr.’s 2014 cabinet report.
Throughout 2013, 22 Town Hall meetings were held to discuss Reimagine Foursquare. Six task forces investigated the following issues:
- Reclaiming our spiritual vitality
- Refocusing our identity
- Reigniting our mission
- Redesigning our responsibilities
- Realigning our polity
- Reallocating our resources
The research from the task force groups formed the basis for the five points of alignment that were accepted by the cabinet and recommended to the board of directors.
Glenn stated: “This is the time to ‘enlarge the tent, lengthen the cores, and strengthen the stakes.’ There is going to be a breakthrough for this and future generations.”
