This June, the executive committee had a unique and needed opportunity to gather for a retreat to envision how MALC can stabilize funding in order to best serve the needs of inmates moving forward and act as a bridge between supporting congregations. We met for a whole day with a hired facilitator, thanks to a Siebert Lutheran Foundation Grant. During the retreat we were able to focus on 3 objectives that are integral to MALC going forward. The results of our conversation yielded strategies for the three objectives below that MALC will work hard to employ in the coming months:

Objective #1: Strengthening finances

Objective #2: Strengthening communications

Objective #3: Strengthening board and staff
