The Transition Team has met twice now. It meets on Wednesdays from 11:30a-1p.
Sub-committees/work groups have been created around Care, Culture, Church Model, Communications, and Teaching. Each of these work groups desires input from all staff and hopes to well-represent the variety of voices and experiences we have here. Work groups may reach out to lay leaders and congregants for input as well.
Transition Team Members:
Co-Chairs: Mike Boulware and Tom Emmerich
Council: Tom Emmrich, Deidre Foster, Tom Mullis
Senior Staff: Max Baumgartner, Mike Boulware, Andy Guthe, Gentry Eddings, John Parker, Jonathan Scott, Jason Smith, Andrew Weiler, Rebecca Woodman

Work Group Updates:
Here are the first action items of a few of the work groups:
Teaching: Jason Smith and Jonathan Scott have pulled together a work group that well represents diversity among gender, age and ethnicity to discuss messaging and sermon series and how to reach people for Christ.
Communications: Stacey Martin and the communications team will conduct a communications audit to assess how and what we’re communicating now and how it can be improved in the future to optimize transparency and timely communications.
Culture: Andrew Weiler and Andy Guthe will conduct a culture audit starting with leadership and then moving outwards to staff, lay leaders and then congregation. Ask the question, how do we cascade culture/DNA >> relational rhythm, savvy stewardship, intelligent design?

Model: Very first step for this team is to be in prayer and ask this question, "God, what role would you have Forest Hill play in your Kingdom, in this city/region?"
