Insight 291: FaithSoaring Churches Declare Mission and Cast Vision
Congregations seeking to transform have a pastor and staff willing to declare mission and cast vision. Mission is the eternal, never-changing, generic, and spiritual understanding of the long-term focus of the congregation in the spirit of the Great Commission and the Great Commandment.
Vision is the empowering, ten-years-or-less, specific, and spiritual understanding of the mid-term transition and change strategy of a congregation in the direction of God’s call upon them.
Great pastor and staff leadership is wise enough to know they can declare a statement of mission, but must cast and then craft a visionary leadership movement.
