All this month on Inspi(re)ality we’ve been talking about the importance of churches having vision, and practical ways to help get there. Last week, I sat down with Josh Ross, the preaching minister at the Sycamore View Church of Christ. They’ve just rolled out a new vision for their church, and so I was asking him about what this process had looked like for them.
In the Interview I asked Josh 6 questions:
1. What led you and your church leadership to casting a vision at your church?
2. How did you and the church leadership go about forming and casting the vision?
3. How did you communicate to the church at large about the vision?
4. Your vision is called “Restore” Why that language?
5. Have you seen any differences in your church since launching a new vision?
6. What about the preacher of 100 member church? What suggestions do you have for them to help cast a vision in their context?
What I love about Josh and Sycamore View is the way that they love their city, and have communicated an externally focused vision. For examples on the testimonies Josh was talking about in the video, here are some links to the videos they’ve used to communicate their vision repeatedly.
