The Northwest District Operational Team, is the group tasked with engaging in Loving, Learning, and Leading in the Northwest District of The United Methodist Church. This group makes up a team of laity and clergy who partner with the District Superintendent to provide the adaptive leadership needed to discover and address the challenges and opportunities of the Church today.
The District Operational Team typically meets once a month for six to eight hours in locations throughout the district. We spend our time engaging in three critical practices:
· Loving—Growing in our love of God and each other so that we develop a deeper foundation of trust
· Learning—By reading books and other materials, we learn together how best to find possible solutions to the challenges we face.
· Leading—Guided by our Mission, Vision, and Values, we develop a System and Strategy to leverage our greatest opportunities for positive transformation in the district.
The District Superintendent will build a team of six to twelve people of diverse spiritual and leadership gifts. People will not be selected due to position but rather her or his ability to complement a healthy team.
