Goals for St. Mark’s: My hopes and prayers for St. Mark’s are two-fold: (1) to enhance, strengthen, and expand the work of the Great Commission – to spread the Word of God, bringing in new believers to the community of St. Mark’s; (2) to strengthen the Church’s reach to its own parishioners to support them in their personal Christian pilgrimages, helping them through all their trials and tribulations as well as victories in these journeys. These two goals, one external (outreach) and one internal (inreach), can be accomplished through a combination of teamwork, frugal oversight of resources, and innovation.
