NEXT LEVEL INNOVATIONS
Next Level Innovations Report
On November 24, 2019, the Next Level Innovations team presented their report to the congregation of Virginia Beach United Methodist Church. The PDF of this report is now available online and may be accessed by clicking the button on the right. It contains the team’s observations and analysis of the church’s strengths, weaknesses, and suggested innovations.
Virginia Beach United Methodist Church will hold Town Hall meetings to discuss this report and recommended innovations.
The dates for these town halls are as follows:
- Sunday, December 8 at 4:00 PM
- Tuesday, December 10 at 7:00 PM
The congregation will vote on this report at an official church conference led by the district superintendent on Monday, December 16 at 6:30 PM.
If the report and innovations are approved by a vote of at least 70% of official church members present and voting, the NLI process will continue with the implementation of these innovations. If the report and innovations are not accepted, the NLI process will be deemed complete and the resources of NLI will move on to other churches.
Please feel free to share observations and comments in preparation for the upcoming Town Halls by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
