The Intermountain District desires renewal, revival and revitalization of the church. Churches with a growth mindset have things in common, including a "principles vs preferences" mentality. Carey Nieuwhof writes about that in his article about attitude differences in growing churches vs declining churches. For example, he describes declining churches that adjust based on the preferences of their members, while growing churches focus on principles and plans that will reach new people. Check out the article here.
