Greetings from your Windfall Committee/Task Force, whatever we are supposed to be called.
We are a group who see our roles as to do the research and community consensus gathering around the best, long-term, sustainable use of fund from the sale of the former Pueblo de Dios, former Zion property.
We are a group of PoP members with various connections to the ministries of this church, various work backgrounds. But no leadership within any groups, so as to avoid any potential impressions of either favoritism or conflicts of interest.
Our members are: Roger Curry, Thea Jorgensen, Janine Rousseau (Zempel), Steve Solberg & Pr. Nate.
Due to unplanned circumstances around PoP’s hindrances in purchase of a parsonage, our first task, and our sole focus for now, is on determining the best use of funds so that PoP can secure a parsonage.
As such we are already evaluating some investment options to get an idea of a reasonable expectation for return on investment, to as accurately as possible present various purchasing options for Prince of Peace.
We have gathered information and will begin presenting our findings to a series of focus groups in the month of May, to prepare for a presentation to council which we feel will have the support of an overwhelming consensus of the congregation. And thus move smoothly into a special congregational meeting/vote.
3.Focus Group testing
will be our process again as we move forward into the 2nd and 3rd phases of our mission: finding a sustainable investment which provides a good return - & - creating an outline and method for disbursement of those returns.
We understand that there is much excitement about the possibilities this windfall entails, however, we want to urge caution and ask that we all, as we are able, take part in the process we are setting forth. The good folks at Zion gave this property to the care of Prince of Peace after many years of love and hard work. We owe it to them that this gift works for the good of this community, and the larger church, for as long as possible.
