Each of the pastors on our Board gave us his/her blessing to recruit members from their church to serve on teams who
would study the health of our city in each of the nine areas we defined. Each team was asked not to do original research, but
to find the best available data in their area, identify the areas and neighborhoods of greatest need, report the current work
already being done, and suggest where the greatest opportunities are for the church to serve. They were also asked to list
resources for further study. Larry Jensen agreed to serve as chairman of the steering committee, made up of the leaders
from each of the teams.
What you find on the following pages are the results of these teams’ efforts.
