O ur Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name... 2010 annual report BRYN MAWR PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH of BRYN MAWR , PENNSYLVANIA
Dear Members and Friends of Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church,
ver the last 10 to 12 months we have been engaged in efforts to “get our house in order” at the church. These initiatives have included activities that you have participated in with enthusiasm, I have noted, such as a Congregational Survey, Listening Groups, gatherings of current leaders in the congregation, a Service of Reconciliation and Healing, and a “Town Hall Meeting.”
“Over the last 10 to 12 months we have been engaged in efforts to ‘get our house in order’ at the church.” We also have been active within the office and the boards and committees, sorting through administrative procedures and governance issues. We have begun conversations among the Session, Trustees, Foundation and Deacons with the goal of clarifying the function of each board within the life of the congregation. These are governance issues that some of you are familiar with in other organizations. Clarity is needed if the organization - in our case, the church - is to function efficiently and with an eye to streamlining. It is neither easy nor painless to do this in a large and multi-layered organization like BMPC. But I want to report to you that we have made great strides along this path.
A few of the highlights along our way during these past 12 months include careful monitoring of our expenses and the elimination of a large budget deficit by the end of 2010. We have further streamlined professional and support staff which is cost-effective but nevertheless painful. We have created multiple Task Forces and Action Groups and new Committees while eliminating others. These groups concern themselves with such diverse areas as financial projections and strategies, implementing the suggestions that have come out of the recent Self-Study project, program dreams, and even the election of a Pastor Nominating Committee.
dedicated members and staff.” And that, dear hearts, is as fine a beginning point as you will find for defining the church of Jesus Christ. We are a collection of dedicated disciples with one objective: the proclamation of the love of God for the world through Jesus Christ. It takes many people and many gifts and tremendous effort and long days to make that possible. We are, after all, just “agents of reconciliation,” God’s reconciliation with the world. But what a joy it is to be in this effort with all of you! Thank you for past productive months and the promise of many more to come.
Sincerely, I realize that all of this administrative James L. Carter, review and reform hasn’t a lot to do with Interim Pastor worship and music and preaching and pastoral care and Christian education for children and adults, but it is part of the background structure that makes all of that, and more, possible. This has really been, in a word, a watershed year for us at BMPC. It has been a wonderful 17 months for me and my family. We have never been associated with a congregation of such talented members and staff nor one with such energy and vision for the tasks before it. As I look back over the last year I am amazed at how much we have accomplished together. I won’t take space to list those areas of our unified life that have been affected by the efforts of your leaders, but it includes nearly all of them.
As you read the Annual Report prior to the Congregational Meeting in early May, you will have before you an outline of the mission and its impact on lives of members and friends of BMPC. People say to me, “There surely is a lot going on in and beyond that church! How do you ever keep up with it?” The answer is, “Only with a lot of help from

2010 - A Year of Discernment Listening, Learning, Envisioning
MPC undertook a Self-Study project this year to reflect on our past, consider our present, and direct our future as a congregation. Coordinated by a Listening Self-Study Team of church members and guided by the Alban Institute’s Senior Consultant Susan Beaumont, we worked together to discern answers to three fundamental questions:
Who are we? (congregational identity) Who is our neighbor? (our context) What is God calling us to do or become? (our purpose) Our Self-Study included the following: • A congregational survey (Pastoral Search Inventory from the Hartford Institute) which was completed by 729 members (September, 2010). • “Listening Circles” which drew 335 participants who engaged in dialogue about characteristics of our past and hopes and dreams for our future (October, 2010). • Analysis of data and trends: membership, attendance, stewardship and giving, program participation, and budget/finances (November, 2010). • Analysis of relevant external demographics and interviews with community leaders (November, 2010). • Summarization of all collected material (November, 2010). • Leadership Retreat attended by 90+ church officers and members to review all collected material, identify core values and strengths to preserve, and develop strategic priorities (December 3-4, 2010). The conclusions drawn from the Self-Study were summarized in a Self-Study Report and submitted to Session for approval. (As of this 1 writing in early 2011, the Self-Study report and supporting materials have been submitted to Presbytery and approved by the Committee on Ministry as the first step toward forming a Pastor Nominating Committee and beginning a search for a new Pastor/Head of Staff.)

Who Are We?
rom the Self-Study, we learned that outreach and mission and the church’s music programs topped the list of BMPC essential Core Characteristics. Pastoral leadership, strong youth ministry, and congregational unity were mentioned most often as hopes and dreams for the future.
BMPC Core Values emerged from the collective discernment of more than 90 participants at the leadership retreat. These core values are unique, highly valued, deeply felt characteristics of this church that define the perspective we have on our faith, our church, and our purpose as a faith community. These core values are summarized as follows: • We strive to be faithful followers of Christ and grow spiritually by providing members with meaningful worship, educational, and service opportunities. • We give glory to God through inspirational worship offering carefully prepared and delivered sermons, music, liturgy and sacrament. • We foster loving, caring, and engaging relationships among members within the congregation. • We support and provide spiritually affirming and intellectually stimulating Christian education for people of all ages, especially children and youth. • We are committed to extending the love and care of Jesus Christ to local, regional, national, and international communities through financial support, service and prayers. • We welcome diverse individuals and diverse perspectives into our community of faith.
What Is God Calling Us To Do Or Become? In addition to our Core Values, we have identified three Strengths to Preserve. We see these as central to our BMPC heritage and important to develop and enhance in order to keep them vibrant into the future. • Worship Excellence: quality worship experience grounded in strong preaching and inspiring music. Worship is central to all that we do. • Education and Music: Christian education for children, youth, adults. Music training, musical contributions to worship, and sacred concerts. • Mission, Outreach, and Service to others: scope of mission is local, urban, regional, and international; provide financial resources, build empowering relationships, and serve others through hands-on involvement. Strategic Initiatives have been identified as those areas of ministry in which we need to invest or begin to develop for the next chapter of our church’s life. A vision of the church after working on each initiative is described below: • Spiritual Foundations: We envision a church whose members are more spiritually alive and informed, able to articulate and live by God’s abiding presence in their lives. • Organizational Fitness: We envision a church with effective congregational structures and processes, vibrant ministries, and synergy between mission and resources. • Depth to our Doing: We envision BMPC as a church that calls forth spiritual depth, engagement and participation from its members in its myriad activities and that provides fruitful opportunities for personal development, community and spiritual interaction. BMPC ANNUAL REPORT
Financial challenges and the church’s corrective measures are reflected in the 2010 income statement, balance sheet, and report of assets of the BMPC Foundation: • BMPC ended 2010 with a modest surplus of $21,000 after covering the 2009 operating deficit of $197,000.

• In 2010, 841 pledges were made in support of BMPC’s 2011 ministry. This represents a 2.3% increase from 2009. The average pledge of $2,681 was the same as last year. We achieved 98% of our stewardship goal and anticipate meeting 100% of our stewardship goal of $2.3 million by the conclusion of our current stewardship campaign.

• BMPC continued to make expense cuts in 2010. Dollars available from the annual operating budget for mission/outreach expenditures were reduced in 2010 to enable recovery of the 2009 deficit. Expense reductions also were achieved in personnel.

• BMPC’s total giving to mission/outreach in 2010 was $1,047,000. This number reflects not only the mission/outreach financial support provided through the annual operating budget but also support provided from specific fundraising for hunger, the Alternative Gift Market, and gifts from restricted funds in the BMPC Foundation. • The cost of maintaining our buildings and campus continued to rise in 2010 and will pressure future budgets. • The BMPC Foundation provides essential income support to the operating budget as well as restricted support for designated programs and mission/outreach initiatives. Preservation of Foundation assets through growth and a financially sound withdrawal policy is a priority. Within the Foundation, new funds were established totaling $260,200 and gifts were made to existing funds totaling $90,000. • In response to financial challenges BMPC will strive to match operating expenses to revenues each year, increase stewardship income, and reduce dependence on BMPC Foundation income. Strengthening the balance sheet and the BMPC Foundation will ensure a stong legacy for generations to come.

Updating BMPC’s Membership Rolls We experienced a significant gap in BMPC’s practice of “cleaning” the church rolls. Our Constitution (Book of Order) for the PC(USA) states that “The Session shall review the roll of members at least annually.” Taking time to “clean” the rolls is an important task for an interim period between senior pastors and allows us to reallocate financial resources as well as depict a true picture of the size and life of the church. Our Membership Director, Donna Barrickman, identified members who, for at least two years, have lived out of our area or at an unknown address and have not attended, participated or contributed to BMPC. Also identified were local members between the ages of 28-70 with no evidence of attendance, participation, or contribution for four consecutive years. Following staff and Session review of these names and a letter encouraging re-engagement, more than 500 individuals were changed from active to inactive membership status. Our goal is to encourage discipleship and active participation in church life so it is our hope to reconnect with those who no longer attend. Inactive members are always welcomed back, but if they do not return, they may be removed from the church rolls after a period of at least one year.

his Annual Report includes a list of members who, as of early April 2011, agreed to be thanked publicly. The Stewardship Committee thanks ALL who helped make the 2011 campaign a success, including those whose names are not listed. We celebrate our campaign results which included 122 members who did not pledge for 2010 but did so for 2011 and 265 members who increased their pledges. Our 2011 campaign began as Dr. Carter asked us to “Take It Off The Top” and challenged us to provide BMPC with increased financial resources to “make our giving pyramid” top heavy. The results are encouraging even as we continue to work toward those goals. The recent economic trend of declining stewardship dollars and pledging members appears to be turning around for BMPC. On behalf of the Stewardship Committee, I am thankful to all who made the 2011 stewardship campaign a success! ~ Brad Baturka on behalf of the Stewardship Committee

Moving Forward Now that we have identified the strategic priorities to guide a Pastor Nominating Committee, we are ready to begin the search for a new Pastor and Head of Staff. How fortunate we have been to have the Rev. Dr. James Carter, associate pastors and the pastoral residents leading us through this transitional period! Our Self-Study Report, summarizing our core values, strengths to preserve, and strategic initiatives, will guide our ministry in the years ahead. Session has directed a subgroup to recommend plans for implementation and work will go forward with continued direction from Session and our current Interim Senior Pastor. Our new pastor will have an opportunity to shape the strategic initiatives and guide the enhancement of strengths that we want to preserve.
or thine is the kingdom, The power and the glory.
or ever and ever. Amen
