At the 2008 Oklahoma Annual Conference, delegates overwhelmingly approved a plan to create a "Strategic Plan" for the Oklahoma Conference of the UMC. Following the session, each church was to approve their own plan for guiding the work of the individual local churches.
At the 2009 church conference, Highland Park approved the first of its strategic plans which have since guided the work of our committees and ministry teams. The plans include goals based on Robert Schnase's "Five Practices for Fruitful Congregations" and progressive benchmarks which are met and reported on throughout the year.
