  8. 8. KEY CONCEPT: A SHARED VISION • We tend to get frustrated when we don’t have the complete picture. • Our choices are easy when everyone shares the same vision. • We need to share the vision, the goal, the big picture with people when we give them tasks so that they can make the right choices when decisions arise. • We can make the right choices by seeing which options align with the vision.
  9. 9. Business Application: • Do you delegate tasks without sharing the vision of what this task will accomplish? • How do your gifts, talents, skills and abilities contribute the big picture in your company?
  10. 10. Personal Application: • Do you have a dream, a goal for your life that guides your important decisions? • Are your decisions decided by the whim of the moment or do they bring you closer to your dream?
  11. 11. Spiritual Application: • What is your place in this world? • Do you know the Creator’s plan for your life?
  12. 12. Relationships Application: • Do you have problems with communication because you lack a shared vision? • Do you make decisions in relationships based on your vision of what others need and want? How would this change the decisions you make?
  13. 13. Bible Studies based on the book of Jonah Only. This youth camp curriculum was designed to teach the basic truths of obedience in addition to evangelism in the context of a Biblical character. The advantage of going through a book and looking at one man's story is that we see not only the teaching but the example. It becomes much more real! Camp Curriculum - Whale of a Tale -> Tell me about “Whale of a Tale”
  14. 14. Creative Youth Ideas Camp Bible Study Series “Who Do You Say that I AM?” -> Tell me about “Who Do You Say that I AM?” Jesus asked the disciples, "Who do others say that I am?" It was easy to answer because it required no conviction, no commitment, and no risk. But then he follows that question with another, "Who do YOU say that I am?"
  15. 15. Live the Fruitful, Abundant Life Jesus Promised. Great for youth camps or weekly Youth Bible Study. There are 7 Primary Bible study Sessions in the series. -> Tell me about “Fruit Of the Spirit” Creative Youth Ideas Youth Camp Bible Study Series “Fruit Of the Spirit”
  16. 16. "The Great Adventure" is western themed Bible study series loosely based around the song of the same name by Steven Curtis Chapman. It was initially written for a large Texas Church to use for their Summer Youth Camp but has since then proven popular around the world.
