Congregations seeking to transform need a captivating vision. They need to understand the following about vision. Do not confuse the source of vision [Triune God], the responsibility to own vision [pastor and other leaders], with the role of being the voice of vision [pastor and other leaders].
The pastor is not the source of vision. The Triune God is the source. The pastor is not the sole recipient of God’s vision. Congregations are the recipients. The pastor is the most important voice who casts God’s vision to the congregation and the community context [along with the casting efforts of other leaders].
