SALI

In 2019, a new ministry was launched by St. Andrew’s. The goal was to recruit recent college graduates on a national scale and embed them within our congregation for 9 months to prepare them for a life in the marketplace or within the Christian church as Christian leaders.

BY GOD’S GRACE AND SUPERNATURAL POWER, WE WELCOMED TWELVE EXCEPTIONAL ASSOCIATES, SIX OF WHICH ARE WORKING IN THE COMMUNITY AND SIX ON STAFF AT ST. ANDREW’S.

The SALI team’s main goals were (1) to recruit, interview and either hire them housing by having associates live in homes of SA members; (3) to seek out mentors for each associate and (4) to provide teaching opportunities on Fridays career path they follow. Each Associate was welcomed by their host families on Labor Day weekend, teaching sessions, they have participated in other exciting activities including a surfing day, canoeing in Newport Bay, and rock climbing in Joshua Tree. St. Andrew’s pastoral staff, John Fry, Stan Jantz, Thor Johnson, Gary Watkins, Carolyn McOwen, Laura and Roger Conover, and Salim Munayer. One of the main travel experiences of the fall was a trip to Tennessee for The Micah 6:8 Conference hosted by The Fellows Initiative. The Associates had bonding opportunities together including going to bonfires, playing basketball, exploring downtown Memphis, and of course, winning the ultimate Frisbee tournament. This was the first exposure of the Associates with similar groups. Through worship, invigorating speakers, and many opportunities to mingle with other programs, they learned that they are not just one group in California but are blessed to be working with hundreds of recent graduates across the country. There will be another trip in the spring for the National Convention of The Fellows Initiative (TFI), a national organization doing similar things. It will give our Associates a chance to meet many other Associates and share their experiences. In May of 2020, the first “class” will be graduating. Please stay tuned for the celebrations planned as we express our appreciation and love for each associate that agreed to say YES to this God inspired adventure.

WORSHIPPING JESUS CHRIST TOGETHER

When I look back on the variety of ministry expressions at St. Andrew’s in 2019, Paul’s greeting to the people of Philippi comes to mind: “I thank my God every time I remember you” (Philippians 1:3). The Gather department is responsible for the worship service planning, music events, A.V. Tech and production support, as well as the production of the Live Stream service we offer. In all that we get to do, we have one goal: to glorify God by creating an atmosphere of worship for his people to draw near to him. We are grateful for every singer in our choir and on our modern worship team, for every musician, for every skilled tech, and for every elder and leader who sits on the Gather Team board to provide wisdom and vision for our worship ministry. As we continue to embody the community we aspire to be, in 2019 we made a change in our worship schedule to help create a more conducive environment for our congregation to develop greater connections regardless of the service they attend. It has been a joy to experience our community coming together during the GAP (Gathering All People) hour. The GAP has provided the backdrop for an important aspect of our worship together: loving God through loving others. The goal of creating an atmosphere for worship led us to a rich and meaningful Holy Week in 2019. We focused on creating an immersive experience to witness Christ’s journey to the cross and resurrection through the lens of his disciples who witnessed it. In addition to our beautiful and mournful Maundy Thursday service, the outdoor

produced several music concerts this past year including concerts hosted by Dr. Jung-A Lee (Organ), Dr. Hye Jung Shin (Piano), and Tom Leonard (Organ). We capped off the year with nearly 2,000 friends and visitors at our Christmas Concerts, “All Is Bright.” From classical, to jazz, to gospel, the use of diverse music was used to capture the diversity of those who witnessed the birth and light of Christ. This year also marks the first Christmas Tree Light Spectacular where we lit our church family Christmas tree and reminisced on highlights from our ministry year. We want to thank you for worshiping with us, attending concerts, and for being a vital part of our neighborhood church as we follow Christ into the world. Your Gather team prays for you often. “In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:4-6).

Life of the Beloved In this series, we journeyed through a Henry Nouwen classic, Life of the Beloved, and explored the background of his extraordinary way of seeing our life in Christ.

Beautiful Things | Easter Our Holy Week services included Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter, and a Daybreak Experience. Throughout this time, we were able to remember Christ’s love for us and his ultimate triumph over death. (Genesis 2:7)

The Gospel For this series, we explored what makes the gospel “good news,” and what that means not only for us but for the whole world.

This summer series was the kick-off to learning about a part of our new mission statement as a church.

Kingdom of God This fall we discovered together the great privilege we have of being included in Christ’s mission to make all things new. He is not only at work in each one of us, but also in reaching the world he loves through us.

I Am In this sermon series, we learned what it means to walk with Jesus through the gospel of John, where we are given the blueprint to who Jesus is in his seven great “I Am” statements.

Watch for the Light | Christmas Correlating with our advent devotional, we saw how the light of Christ shines throughout the biblical themes of creation, prophecy, incarnation, and Kingdom.

2019 experienced a continuation of men, women, young adults and high school students continuing to learn what it means to know, trust, love and follow Jesus. In small groups, over 380 people connected in homes, around tables, in living rooms and coffee shops. In its second year, Branches provided 64 of those men and women with a foundational theology of discipleship. In both the fall and winter, 65 individuals came together in silence, contemplation and prayer during our HalfDay Spiritual Retreats. During Advent, over 50 individuals participated in the self-guided Advent Prayer experience. Each of these environments provided meaningful ways for our congregation to receive the gift of God’s presence and grow deeper as a family in Christ. What a year!

We desire to see men in vital relationships encouraging and influencing one another to know, trust, love and follow Jesus Christ. As Proverbs 27:17 urges, “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” Throughout the year, men met in weekly gatherings in small groups and the Wednesday fellowship as well as a roster of inspiring guest speakers. With an emphasis on life application, the Men’s Tuesday Study focused on two series related to our church theme of Neighborhood Church with Global Impact. The first series was entitled Acts: Know, Trust, Love and Follow Jesus Christ and the second series was: The Parables of Jesus—Unlocking Uncommon Wisdom.

In 2019, Care Ministries led numerous Services of Prayer for Wholeness and Healing, and the response was heartfelt and significant.

THE CHURCH FINISHED THE YEAR WITH INCOME EQUAL TO EXPENSES: + Income received was $6.97M, $420K below budget + Expenses were $6.97M, $361K lower than budget + Net operating income was breakeven

BALANCE SHEET: Cash: As of December 31, 2019, bank balances totaled $4.4M. This total is comprised of: + $2.9M operating and capital reserves + $1.2M for Welcome Home/2020 Vision + $0.3M in dedicated accounts Debt: $1.12M as of December 31, 2019, which is the Parsonage mortgage balance. In summary, the final results for 2019 were satisfactory, as we met our expenses for the year. We finished the year with strong contributions in December, receiving 9% more than budget for the month. Annual results included revenue below our budgeted revenue, however, our expenses were also below budget. We did not meet our budgeted Net Operating Income of $59K which was slated for Capital Reserves. In 2020, we hope to make a more significant addition to our capital expenditure reserves and have set a budget goal of $150K for that purpose. St. Andrew’s is blessed with a congregation that remains committed in its generosity toward the church and its mission. Respectfully submitted,

SCOTT READ Treasurer

FINANCIAL REVIEW (INFORMATION ONLY) Chap next introduced Scott Read to present the Treasurers Report. Scott presented the 2018 Summary Report and advised that for the year we were short on contributions and ahead on expenses and confirmed


MI NUTE S

that Session has revised the budget in July from $7.67M to just over $7M. With year-ending giving, we had net income over expenses of $281,000, exceeding the revised budget. At year end, we maintain a strong cash position and Session has approved a 2019 budget of $7.39M with expected expenses of $7.36M.

2018 AND VISION 2020 UPDATE Elder Kyle Team, Co-Chair of Welcome Home, was introduced and presented the 2018 contribution analysis which shows a decrease in the number of family unit givers (557) with a corresponding decrease in giving close to 5% overall offset by the addition of 379 family giving units and an increase in giving per giving unit. Attendance has trended down for the four services with a decrease of 11.6% from 2017 to 2018. Kyle reported that Welcome Home 2020 campaign is now closed with income of almost $22M against expenses disbursed of $20.5M, and the Leadership Institute remaining to be completed.

OPEN COVENANT PARTNER DISCUSSION Chap Clark next opened the meeting to questions from the covenant members. Staff, including Scott Read, addressed the reduction in missions outreach. Chap confirmed that none of our mission partners were affected by budget reductions, and that we are committed to increasing our mission giving. Pam Jensen inquired about her discussion at the 2018 annual meeting concerning financial transparency. Staff clarified that no formal action had been taken concerning a proposed financial forum and Ms. Jensen requested someone move to compel Session to do so. There was no further discussion and no request for or action taken on Ms. Jensen’s request. Staff addressed questions from the floor about the budget and acknowledged a typographical error in the Annual Report to reflect the report is year over year and December 1 should be December 31. At the request of John Lehman, it was agreed the Membership Report numbers will be added back into the Annual Report. Chap responded to an inquiry about changes in titles and discussed the realignment of duties, confirming that that there had been no change in ministry duties or compensation resulting from title changes. There was ongoing discussion

about the content of financial information in the Annual Report, and Chap addressed the desire to maintain consistency and transparency while maintaining confidentiality on salaries which are approximately 69% of budget. Chap confirmed that we currently have a skeleton staff and there are stringent checks and balances in place for review of expenses. In response to a question about financial audits, David Team addressed the prior delay in completion of audits. The 2017 audit was done shortly after the 2018 Annual Meeting and was clean. The 2018 audit is complete with a clean report and is available through Jim Eddy. The 2017 audit is on our website and the 2018 audit will be put on shortly. Chap next addressed replacing Dan Wendell and Julie Wood’s role. Julie has done a great job as interim minister of missions and we are going to do a search for a permanent replacement for Dan Wendell in which Julie is invited to participate. The budget contains a line item for that position. In response to inquiry, staff addressed the reasons for the satellite campus South County being tabled, and the lack of an ECO church presence as far south as San Diego. Chap confirmed that with our MAG members, this is one of the main topics of discussion this coming year. Lastly, Chap briefly spoke to the work on the Discipleship Institute, looking at our role in the community and the world, the status of the classic music ministry under Michael Busch, and the desire to increase seminarian support through increased congregational giving.

ADJOURNMENT There being no other business brought before the Annual Meeting, Chap thanked those in attendance for their participation and generosity and closed in prayer. On MOTION duly made, the meeting was adjourned at 2:00 p.m.
