Beyond Roots of Health
In 2011 we focused on developing four Roots of Health: Formation, Leadership, Mission, and Care. As we turned our focus toward spiritual health, we began to see not only areas of fruit, but also two specific areas where our community could become healthier. The first was that we could be more committed to the message and mission of Christ, which is always bigger than any one person. The second, learned from our newly launched satellites Bethany West Seattle and Bethany North, was that churches are healthiest as they localize, worshiping with people in their own part of the city and joining together on a common mission to bless their unique localities.
Throughout 2012, we continued to pursue the four Roots of Health, but it was time to look for someone to help Bethany localize even further. Thus, the search for "Pastor X" began.
