One crucial test of vision is that it moves the congregation forward in God’s image and not the image of humankind.
Discernment of the true, grace-filled direction for a congregation is an ongoing process that continually asks if each new major action is taking the congregation in the direction of fulfilling its God-given vision.
It is not about moving the congregation in the direction of any individual leader, the pastor and staff, the board or council, a certain age group, longer-tenured members, key influencers in the life of the congregation, or the people of the greatest spiritual passion about the congregation’s future.
True vision continually visualizes the congregation in the image of God. Like a master artist God creates an ever-clearer image for a congregation with high definition that displays the image as multi-dimensional, dramatic, and impactful.
