Vision is an essential element of any effective ministry. But what exactly is vision? It is a clear mental image of a preferable future, imparted by God to His chosen servants. It is based upon an accurate understanding of God, yourself and your circumstances. It is practical, realistic and action-oriented. It is the specific steps you must take to fulfill God's broader mission for your ministry. Vision is the insight God provides to instruct you and direct your paths. And unless you have that clear picture-from Him of where you're headed, your chances of a successful journey are severely limited, at best. But once you have caught God's vision, you can be mightily used. Because God uses people who are willing to listen to His call and follow His vision. Moses, David, Nehemiah, Paul and many other biblical leaders were people who caught God's vision for their lives and followed it without reserve. In The Power of Vision, you'll see how you can do the same and increase your effectiveness as you work to serve Him. You'll learn: - How God has shared his vision throughout history - How vision is different than mission - The myths that christian leaders possess about visions - Common practices and beliefs that inhibit true vision - The characteristics of Godly wisdom - Practical steps toward discovering God's unique vision for you - Ways to share and promote congregational ownership of the vision Also included are three Bible study outlines to help you share the principles of vision with your church, seven steps to marketing your church, and five common objections you may encounter as you pursue God's vision.
Prepare to meet the challenges of a changing culture with seminars that will educate and mobilize your congregation. Each 60-minute presentation includes reproducible handouts and syllabus.
