Strategic Plan 2017-2020

The strategic planning process for the Ohio River Valley District took place during the first quarter of 2017. From a district-wide survey and town hall meetings made up of pastors and laity in the Ohio River Valley District, our consultant, Sheri Chaney-Jones of Measurement Resources, was able to analyze the current state of the ORV and understand the vision of the future. With input from the ORV leadership team, a 3-year plan was developed that highlights 5 strategic focus areas that will help strengthen the district's collective impact of making disciples for the transformation of the world.

The 5  focus areas are:
1) branding and marketing
2) equipping and resourcing congregations
3) developing leadership excellence
4) creating collaborative networks
5) strengthening outreach and witness

You are invited to read the plan and provide feedback. Please send your comments to ohiorivervalley [at]
