Strengths

Strong parish located in Waynesboro, VA in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley next to Appalachian Trail and Blue Ridge Parkway.

From Parish Profile:

"We envision a church that continues to foster a loving and accepting atmosphere for all members, with strong pastoral care and outreach, while working to create an environment that will attract new families. Building on our sturdy foundation, we wish to provide more programs and opportunities for spiritual fulfillment that appeal to and feed our members and people who may visit or inquire or are searching. Also, we wish to expand our missional presence in the community and work with other churches for the greater good of Waynesboro and the world."

Challenges

From Parish Profile:

GROWTH - Despite the societal trends away from mainstream Protestant churches, we need to find new and engaging ways to attract new members and young families.
LACK OF A PLAN – St. John’s does not have a plan for the future. We have not set short or long-term goals to achieve our vision.
