Today and tomorrow, I am in Dallas for the RightNow Conference. Today was a fantastic experience. Follow the tweets tomorrow at #RN10 or if you live the Dallas-Forth Worth area swing on by Irving Bible Church.
I am a huge fan of Brian Mosley and this ministry that went through the Vision Pathway with Auxano last year. The leadership team took six months to hammer the four sides of the Vision Frame:
Mission: What are we doing?
To help people trade in the pursuit of the American Dream for a world that desperately needs Christ
Values: Why are we doing it?
- We love ... THE church. In our neighborhoods, at the office and around the world the mission of the church matters.
- We love … authentic stories.
Real-life stories have the power to inspire and validate what God is doing.
- We love ... immediate action.
Christianity is a verb. To wait is a sin.
- We love ... hard work.
God is glorified when we use our God-given passions and skills with excellence.
- We love ... our families.
There will always be more work to do, but not at the expense of family and friends.
Strategy: How are we doing it?
- Inspiring Leaders
- Transforming Small Groups
- Coaching Individuals
Mission Measure: When are we successful?
The mission is accomplished when a trader is activated. A Trader is a new kind of missionary, not defined by geography but by the resolve to:
- Choose Daily
- Hate Injustice
- Work as Worship
- Act Swiftly
