Galloway Trustee Proposal for the Sanctuary Renovations
The Trustees Proposal for the Sanctuary Renovations is a culmination of interviews with past and present chairpersons of committees overseeing ministry areas within the Sanctuary, past and present Galloway staff members including lead ministers and music/arts directors, the researching of previous findings and recommendations of past Galloway Trustee appointed long range studies, newly made recommendations of professional consultants specifically in the area of acoustics, engineering, architecture and design, the current Galloway Capital Campaign Subcommittee and the input of the current congregation obtained through a series of Listening Sessions held in January 2014.
The Listening Sessions held in January 2014 were open to all worshippers of Galloway and were led and moderated by Galloway member Phil Hardwick. There were three sessions made available to members and all sessions were carried out the same – an introduction video, a proposal video with three options for discernment and a roundtable discussion of pros and cons. Information gathered at these Listening Sessions was then compiled by court reporter and Galloway member Dale Hunt. Nearly 800 comments were entered and this data was then further analyzed by member Brad Chism of Chism Strategies. The resulting document offered a streamlined commentary of the findings of the Listening Sessions and gave the ultimate basis for the Trustees to finalize their proposed recommendation on the Sanctuary Renovations.
It is very important to understand that the Trustees have arrived at this proposal through hours of positive struggle and discernment for what is best for the present and future programming and congregation of Galloway while taking into account it’s past history and traditions.
