Are you walking around in the dark without a flashlight?
Your church is if you do not have a vision.
From MindTools.com: “The vision statement communicates both the purpose and values of the organization. For employees, it gives direction about how they are expected to behave and inspires them to give their best. Shared with customers, it shapes customers’ understanding of why they should work with the organization.”
Does your church have a way to inspire and direct your congregation? If you do not have a vision statement that is over-communicated to your congregation, then how do they know what your church is all about? How do they know what their purpose is within the church? You’re asking them to follow you around in the dark and neither one of you have a flashlight or know where you’re going.
I encourage you to think of a mission and vision of your church and make sure it is well communicated. This way the leadership of the church has a flashlight and so do all of your members, so no one is bumping around in the dark.
