At the Rocky Mountain Conference (RMC) annual meeting held in the summer of 2011 in Salt Lake City, UT we started a quest to determine RMC’s future. That quest was examined and discussed at the annual meetings of 2012 (Fort Morgan, CO) and 2013 (Golden CO), each meeting added more ideas and concrete actions. Following the 2013 meeting a number of visioning sessions were conducted with RMC churches (VGCC hosted such a session in January 2014). All of the efforts and ideas were then distilled into the purpose, values, and goal, which were revealed at the 2014 annual meeting (Grand Junction, CO).
