More Video Series | Currently Viewing: Clarifying Ministry Vision

As you experience success in your church, it can be very tempting to latch onto the practices that you have utilized in the past. As you seek to grow your church and mold it according to God’s will, you will need to accept the fact that systems and methods will change over time. Your goal should not be to nail down a specific system that will allow you to sit back and relax so you do not have to revisit the drawing board.

As nostalgic and sentimental as we like to be sometimes, sustaining an environment that accepts change is crucial. How can this be done? The answer to this question is found by means of using your vision to your advantage. The reason that vision is so vital to your church is because it provides you with a progressive mindset that looks towards the future. If your vision is to always stay the same, you have no vision at all!

As a leader, you have the ability to contribute to an atmosphere that supports a mindset that allows for growth. The words you say can inspire people to be forward-thinking as they generate new ideas to make the church thrive. You have the power to ignite passion in your congregation and in your team to progress the vision of your church into the future.

With intentionality and practical strategy, you can begin to get people to capture the vision that embodies God’s plan for your church. It is imperative that people are latching on the progressive vision of the church in order to refrain from becoming too attached to the past.

In this video, we will discuss the common problem that church leaders have in terms of their mentality and the role that vision plays in eradicating that problem. You will be provided with three ways to get people to capture vision in your church.
