What is Vision 20/20?

Vision 20/20 is Wilshire's far-reaching strategic plan that guides our mission and vision through the year 2020.

 

The Wilshire vision is to become bold witnesses to the way of Christ in our time. This visionary plan began with one-on-one interviews with more than 500 congregants in August 2013.

With that input, key themes of our identity and our values were identified.

Today, Vision 20/20 is expressed in five key initiatives, each led by a volunteer team of congregants passionate about this work. New members of these teams are always welcome. The five teams report to a Vision 20/20 Coordinating Council, which oversees the integration of ideas and work, along with the Vision 20/20 Steering Committee.

Grow. This is the team charged with envisioning ways to make Wilshire a “church without borders.” If you are interested in hospitality, welcoming new members, expanding Wilshire’s presence both internally and externally, working toward diversity in the congregation, this is the team for you.

Learn. This is the team working to create a new Forum for Theological Dialogue and to foster lifelong learning. If you are interested in education, discipleship, spiritual formation, the visual arts, music, theater or thoughtful dialogue on contemporary topics, this is the team for you.

Serve. This is the team that seeks to encourage service both inside the church and in the community. If you are interested in missions, community service, helping others find places of service or encouraging those who serve, this is the team for you.

Transform. This is the team focused on community transformation, combining both missions and Christian advocacy. If you are interested in life-changing missions, social justice issues such as payday lending or hunger or education, educating members about these causes, or creating action plans, this is the team for you.

Sustain. This is the team charged with envisioning a sustainable financial future for the church and its mission. If you are interested in finance, generosity, estate planning, facilities or the Pathways to Ministry program, this is the team for you.

The Wilshire vision is to become bold witnesses to the way of Christ in our time.
