Vibrant Church Initiative

The Vibrant Church Initiative (VCI) launches congregations into a new way of being and doing church. It is an ongoing process for renewal that is unique to each congregation and their mission field. Click here to view the VCI Brochure and take a few moments to watch the video from the Texas Annual Conference (click here).

Over the past several months, the VCI Leadership Team has been completing a “self-study” which gives the VCI Consulting Team information about church history; vital financial statistics, and other statistics that helps the team provide targeted recommendations. Also, about a dozen “mystery guests” have been recruited to visit FUMC and provide feedback on their experience. The VCI Consultation Team will present the church with their recommendations, or “prescriptions,” on Sunday, August 4 following the 11 AM Worship Service. We will then hold several town hall meetings to discuss the finding and ideas expressed in the report and then vote whether or not to accept the prescribed VCI action plan at a special Church Conference meeting. Please save these dates and make plans to attend!
