Values

Values. What are those things (few and specific) that are core to our identity as a faith community? What are those things we wish were core to identity? The following represents an on-going conversation to define who Talbot Street is and who God has called Talbot Street to be:

A strategic presence in the downtown community with our facility.
[Commentary: this has been a commitment for decades and we are still learning what this could mean]
Progressive Reformed theological worldview 
[Commentary: this faith community has leaned forward within our denomintation on issues like women in office]
Intergenerational
[Commentary: a beautiful value present, but a challenge to identity since the values within generations are often quite different]
Decentralized disciple-making culture
[Commentary: Talbot Street Church is exploring what it means to have high ownership of the mission and perhaps less ownership of the organization]
