Vision for St. Matthew’s: I envision the next phase of St. Matthew’s growth to be based on our developing diversity, our focus on our surrounding community and our strengthening of our Christian Education, Worship, Youth, Fellowship and Communications ministries. Pinpointing these areas will take us in the direction we will need to go for the next five-10 years.
