Go home to your family and tell them how much the Lord has done for you and how good he has been to you.

Mark 5:19

The Membership Growth Team is an ever-widening circle of people across the Diocese who are rolling up our sleeves to do God’s work to meet the mission and ministry needs of the church.

To achieve the fast-track 120 days initial action planning process the Team is composed of four members of the Executive Council who will serve as its steering committee.

We are reaching out to others to join our team and we expect this Church Growth Program to be a lay-driven initiative of people drawn widely across the Diocese.

Like the great Ghiberti Doors on Grace Cathedral ready for feast days and great celebrations we hope this Church Growth Program will unleash a new spirit of welcome, inclusion, growth and celebration across the Diocese of California

So expect this list to grow.  If you feel called to this challenging effort please join us by leaving a message with your contact information in the comment section below or call Gary Hunt or any of the Executive Council members on the team:

    We are especially eager to expand the lay leadership on this team and to have representation from across the Deaneries.
