Strengths

They have recovered well in the aftermath of a Title IV action against its former rector, who subsequently renounced his vows of Holy Orders.  They have deepened their faith and learned how to rely on each other to become stronger. Known for their warm welcome to newcomers, including a budding cadre of Persian Christians.

Challenges

They are in rebuild mode.  Although ideally positioned on the edge of the burgeoning Tysons’ Corner area, which has few places of worship, they are seeking relevance to the many newcomers from other traditions of those who are unfamiliar with what we have to offer.
