Few followers get vision easily. Leaders must paint a picture of what the congregation could be like once captured by vision.
A key part of a pastor’s vision casting role is using preaching, teaching, and other formal and informal opportunities to tell stories and paint a vivid picture of what vision looks, feels, and acts like within the congregation and its community context.
They need to talk about Genesis 12 and the journey of Abram’s clan, or the Exodus being led by the cloud by day and fire by night, or the vision of Paul from God to come over to Macedonia, or Peter realizing the Good News is for everyone so he needs to go to the Gentiles, or many other stories from the Bible where God led people towards something not yet seen.
