SWOT = Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats
Why Now?
St. John Orthodox Church is a vibrant, growing community! Since her inception over 30 years ago, the Church has grown and changed in many different ways. The last two years, in particular, have been extremely busy and different for the community. In the last two years, the community has experienced a change in leadership as well as a significant expansion of the physical plant. These major changes have resulted in new excitement while also revealing new challenges and weaknesses to be addressed. While the transition of leadership and the expansion have all gone well, now is the time to take stock of where we have been, where we are, and where we would like to be in the future.
Purpose of the Survey
With all of the above in mind, the purpose of this survey is to evaluate every aspect of our parish life. Lord willing, a thorough evaluation will reveal our strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats. In addition, it will allow us to make conscientious decisions about the direction of the parish and the proper stewardship of our resources.
Each category of the survey will have an opportunity for a rating of 1 to 5. In this breakdown, 1 will mean that an area needs significant improvement and 5 will mean that an area is working very well. After the number rating, there will be an opportunity for further comment.
