5 Process for seeking God’s direction Know where God wants us to go Journey   Understand where we are
6 Process for seeking God’s direction A process is not the same as Truth.  It’s not right or wrong.  It’s just a method to use for achieving one or more goals.   Know where God wants us to go Journey It is a process, a journey over a period of time.  It’s not a once and done decision.  Just like a “mall map” you’ve got to figure out where you are first.   Must consider what kind of inputs and observations will be used to determine where you are.  Then, the more clarity you have on where you are going, the easier the journey, the more efficient the journey, fewer “restarts” etc.    Understand where we are

  • 33. Creation of a vision is not just to justify what a church is already doing
  • 34. Purpose is not to pull people away from other locations of His church; the competition is Satan and his world.
  • 35. Not a “gimmick” used to get membership to do more, give more, etc.
  • 36. Takes work, devotion, & commitment to go through this process for Him
  • 37. Leadership should enter the vision development process uncertain of what it is that He has for this church to do at this location at this time, but yet still be convinced that the church should be doing more for Him.
  • 38. “Holy frustration” leads you to seek greater clarity for the future from Him
  • 39. Possibility of experiencing outcomes that we could never have imagined
  • 40. Shepherds tend the flock in part by taking them to a location of nourishment, safety, etc. Obligation to God to take care of the sheep – “oversight”.

  • 43. “Technician” lives in the present, most concerned with getting the job doneGenerally need all three of these types to be “in balance”. Also, it’s a continuum.

  • 45. “Manager” focuses on precedent and resists change seeing status quo as sacred
  • 46. “Technician” lives in the present, most concerned with getting the job doneGenerally need all three of these types to be “in balance”. Also, it’s a continuum. Ian Fair from Leadership in the Kingdom concerning churches of Christ… “The entrepreneurs, represented by Christians, many of them from the younger and newer generations, call for change. The managers , represented by older, conservative elders comfortable with the past or status quo, resist the calls for change. The technician, represented by the average member, wants to get on with the job of ministering to the community and is frustrated by the traumatized leadership who seem unable to provide the aggressive and creative leadership necessary for real growth.” Critical challenge for church leadership is to maintain biblical balance amongst all three types

  • 77. 23 Needs Improvement Urgent outreach, especially to this community – the church is much too inwardly focused. New member assimilation is lacking – responsibility falls to the new person. Recognize the areas of strength, concentrate on them, and build on them. Focus on Children’s Ministry – it has some attention, but not enough. Severe lack of ongoing support with volunteers. Dedication to God, turning away from this world and material things. Church is not growing spiritually to the degree needed. More accountability. Use what’s available - does not take advantage of opportunities that exist today such as Community Time, local schools, and Children’s Home. More of the membership involved in service – in teaching the lost, serving the church’s needs and meeting the community’s needs. More opportunities to drive deeper into the truths in the Bible are needed. Equip people to be able to turn away from Satan and this world. Expect it. Determination of God’s plan for here and focus/intentionality on fulfilling it. Mentoring of new Christians and future leaders. Attention to prayer ministry; more support/nurturing and PR. Appropriate increase, alignment, and utilization of the staff. Better use of deacons.
