In our work as Search Consultants, we spend a lot of time with churches and faith-based organizations learning about their mission, vision, values and organizational culture.
While most organizations have a fairly clear vision statement, I have noticed that sometimes the vision statement has very little impact on how the organization functions. There are a lot of reasons for this. Ministry is relentless; Sunday comes every week. Christmas, Easter, and the Fall launches new programs every year. Many organizations have a de facto vision to simply make it through the season avoiding a significant mistake. This is understandable but not sustainable. To push your team towards your long-term vision, you need to have a better plan in place.
