Presentation 10/23/2019: Strategic Plan Presentation to Parish Staff


In 2014, St. Gabriel’s 2015-2019 Strategic Plan was built in collaboration with Archdiocese of Louisville leadership.  As a key part of this effort, the team conducted a parish-wide survey and distilled the results into the plan that exists today.  In 2017, the Parish Council recognized the need to assess the current state of the plan and the progress that had been made within the pillars.  Both the council and parish staff agreed that significant progress had been made and worked together to build a way to better monitor progress of the plan, while seeking to increase engagement between the council and staff.  As we entered into 2018, the team started discussing plans to extend/revise the plan into the future and in the 3rd Quarter consulted with Archdiocese leadership on next steps.  This led to a formal RFP for a third party facilitator, the formation of the Strategic Planning Committee (SPC), and selection of Johnson, Grossnickle, and Associates (JGA) to facilitate the process beginning with a kick-off on 2/28/19.  The SPC is made up of the following members: Father John Schwartzlose, Deacon Stephen Bowling, David Gnadinger, Sherri Harbsmeier, Melissa Hillerich, Lara Krill, Betty Osborne, Ken Peet, Eric Schrenger (Co-Chair),  Allyn Simpson, Kathy Stivers, Miranda Wantland (Co-Chair), and Amanda Wolz.
