During this inaugural year, In Word and Witness is prioritizing models that support synodal listening. Our strategic direction focuses on four critical components that are aligned with our core values and enhance the membership experience by contributing to the organizational mission – to transform the world by reflecting Christ.
The landscape in which the Catholic ministries of evangelization and catechesis serve is dynamic, challenging, and hopeful. Polarization, minimal resources, decreased affiliation with faith communities, and redefined roles for ministers are factors that affect our ministerial environment. In Word and Witness is uniquely structured to inspire and innovate within this context by prioritizing collaboration, data analysis, intentional listening, and comprehensive action. This strategic vision utilizes the diversity and expertise of our Board of Directors and responds to the current realities of our community.
