SOTV Sets New Vision, Mission, and Values Statements in 2020

(2020) Using feedback from the survey and focus group discussions, staff and Council have agreed to new language for vision, mission, and values statements. Watch for these to appear on the website soon!

Vision. Welcome home! Gathered. Loved. Sent.

Mission. In response to God’s love, we worship, learn, care, and connect with each other and the world around us.

Values. Centered in the love of God in Jesus, we are:

  • Gathered. All are welcomed and invited, regardless of age, ethnicity, race, ability, faith background, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
  • Loved. We want SOTV to feel like “home” – a safe place where people are accepted, known, and treated with respect and dignity – and also challenged to grow.
  • Sent. We nurture this growing faith, equipping individuals and the church body to meet needs, change lives, and restore hope in our homes, congregation, and communities.
