CCSW Restructure Process
6/12/2017: God continues to be at work in the Southwest Region! Over the years, there have been several efforts to reorganize the Region to increase the entire Region’s effectiveness and viability, but nothing has moved to or past the Regional Council in recent years until now. May 5-6, the Regional Council met, discussed, and approved the conceptual framework that was brought forth by the Regional Restructure Dialogue Group.
That framework places all administrative and staffing responsibilities in the Regional level, with Regional staffing consisting of a Regional Minister, Regional Executive, and Community Regional Ministers and support staff located across the entire Region. Areas would continue to provide valuable volunteer-led ministry. Click below to read more about the background and process that led us to this point and subsequent actions.
The Restructure Dialogue Group wants to hear from Areas and congregations, so look for information about meetings, webinars and live-streaming opportunities in the near future. In the meantime, please continue to share your comments, concerns, affirmations, and ideas about opportunities and challenges by contacting your Area Moderator or by e-mailing Restructure@ccsw.org.
