"The starting point for vision--for thinking about our church's future--is not deciding where we want to go or exploring what is working for other churches, but understanding how we are unique.
Will Mancini, Church Unique
THE VISION FRAME
In this 9-month process you will identify and unlock your congregation's individual identity as a tool for unleashing your one-of-a-kind kingdom potential.
PART 1 Rethink Vision
The common limitations of old vision and strategic planning methods are explored. Church leaders must reconsider the practice of vision today.
PART 2 Uncover Uniqueness
A powerful tool is shared to uncover a church’s unique identity. Vision begins with a clear identity that reveals what your church can do best. This tool is the simple, clear, "big idea' that defines how your church will glorify God and make disciples.
PART 3 Talk Up Vision
You will learn to refine and build a church’s “vision frame”. Missional vision will answer five fundamental questions in a clear, concise and compelling way.
PART 4 Live Out Vision
You will be equipped with the six elements of a compelling vision that will transform how you communicate. Vision is realized only to the extent that it is integrated into the life of the church, one conversation at a time.

"Churches with a simple process for reaching and maturing people are expanding the kingdom...
Conversely, churches without a process or with a complicated process are floundering.
Thom Rainer Ph.D, president and CEO of LifeWay Christian Resources
John did an amazing job of taking a group of people with strong varying opinions, to a consensus of the same vision. Enjoyed the process we were taken through, which was explained very well, in order for us to have great clarity on our purpose as a church. Not only did we get clarity we got a plan to make it happen.
