Beginning in March 2016, the Tel Hai Retirement Community Board of Directors proposed a strategic initiative to review, assess and revise the community’s mission and vision.
A Task Force was created and was composed of team members, residents, and board members. The charge of the Task Force was to consider if the current mission and vision statement was reflective of the purpose, philosophy, and core values of the community. Simply put, we searched to find words that demonstrate who we are and what we strive to do.
After considerable research, deliberation, and discussion, a new mission and vision statement was recommended to the board for final approval in October 2016.
Effective immediately, we are eager to share the new mission and vision statement for Tel Hai Retirement Community:
- Mission: Motivated by Christ’s love for all, our covenant is to provide a vibrant caring community that enhances the lives of those served.
- Vision: To be an innovative Christian community, to inspire respect and purpose for each individual, and to excel in providing quality service.
