Church Unique Snapshot for North Point Community Church: How Andy Stanley Uses Five Faith Catalysts as Mission Measures

Every great leader is relentless at unpacking the five irreducible questions of clarity. I use a Vision Frame as a teaching and communication tool to help leaders continually keep clarity before them and their team. This year I plan to post more examples of completed Vision Frames from churches across the country.

Check out examples in my blog now by typing “Church Unique Snapshot” into the search box in the upper right-hand corner.

Learn more about the Vision Frame.

NORTH POINT COMMUNITY CHURCH VISION FRAME

Our Mission

… to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our Strategy

… to create environments where people are encouraged and equipped to pursue intimacy with God, community with insiders, and influence with outsiders. This is also known as the foyer, living room and kitchen progression. See the visuals here.

Our Values

… the 7 core values are posted here.

The Five Faith Catalysts (We call these mission measures on the Vision Frame)

  1. Practical Teaching
  2. Providential Relationships
  3. Private Disciplines
  4. Pivotal Circumstances
  5. Personal Ministry

Because Andy is so intentional I admire the way he keeps the Five Faith Catalysts in front of their people. Here are two examples that are great benchmarks to learn from. The first is how he introduces them to new believers. The second is how they create a unique website to support sermon series on the Five Faith Catalysts.

The FIRST EXAMPLE  is Starting Point: Check out how the the Five Faith Catalysts are introduced into small group material for new believers and “new to church” folks in this piece by Andy called How Do People Grow

The SECOND EXAMPLE  is the Five Things God Uses Website: Check out the media, notes and curriculum at this tool that supports the sermons series on the Five Faith Catalysts here. If you want to learn more about these, be sure to pick up Andy’s book, Deep and Wide.

I hope this inspires you to “frame up” the four sides of your church’s DNA. Also, if you have completed your Vision Frame recently, I would love to hear about it!

    As compelling, clear and successful as Northpoint’s vision frame is, what would their “one pager” look like?
