Congregations seeking to transform blow a certain trumpet. They are not hesitant. They are confident. Their mission is clear. Their vision is clarifying. Their actions are focused on living into their current understanding of God’s spiritual and strategic direction. They leave no doubt that their congregation is on mission.
They define their congregational journey in positive terms. They know why they are a part of it. They know the benefits of the journey for all who are involved. When someone outside their congregation asks about the uniqueness of the identity of their congregation they have a clear and compelling answer.
