Official 2014 Church Vision Statement Generator

Note from the Vision Room Curator: This post originally ran on New Years’s Eve, but it was so well-received our team decided to roll it out again today. We hope you will take a little time to enjoy this tongue-in-cheek look at church vision statements.

This last week, amidst some post-holiday-meal stupor, a myriad of Facebook feed ”name generators” caught my attention. From Elf Names to Blues Names to Wu-Tang Names, using random details to create identity has never been so easy.

In light of this, and the fact that right now, many Pastors and leaders are doing some reflecting and planning for 2014, I am pleased to present the OFFICIAL 2014 Church Vision Statement Generator (click image to enlarge).

Sadly, more often than not, it seems like actual church Vision and Mission Statements are crafted by methods just as random and meaningless.

> Truth: God has more for your church in 2014 than powerless statements disconnected from actual ministry.

This Spring, Auxano will be hosting 12 church teams as they pursue a Vision Frame for ministry that connects missional calling to disciple-making action. Together, we will pursue unique answers to the 5 Irreducible Questions of Leadership that define and align each church around its Great Commission call.

>> How will you craft meaningful vision for your church this year?

comment_post_ID); ?> In this era, we have the opportunity of professional church staff today who utilize their gifting to shape the image and atmosphere of the church organization. But the 100% real impact on the church visitors is genuine evidence of changed lives by the gospel and the active growing discipleship (just as it was in the first century church). One demonstration is financially rich believers ministering equally together with poor believers (how odd, and incredibly miraculous; all humble and bow at the foot of the cross.). It is the awesome contrast of church members vocations, race, gender, age, maturity, gifting, humility that demonstrates to visitors "there is a Spirit in the place". That first-time guest list of 10 are "physical excuses", not spiritual excuses. Those don't tell the story. The condition of facilities and publicly greeting people have zero to do with it. The power of God in and through believers lives dedicated to impact other people with their relationship bridge-building of acceptance of the lost around them. Empowered believers are infectious, loving, helpful, giving, self-less, dynamic, compelling, bold, Christ-filled. As I have been in many church settings domestically and internationally, the facilities can be poor, and yet the fellowship can still be rich. We need to operate with first church humility. People come to Christ on His terms, not on our human abilities of hospitality. A huge catastrophe in a community, disaster relief brings lots of people into churches – many come to the church in those terrible conditions no matter the physical condition of the local church. Off the condition of facility, and onto the condition of God's people (living stones).... and everything else will grow.... and the other physical issues will be corrected by the staff.
