Advantages of a Clear Vision

Proverbs 14:8 indicates “The wisdom of the prudent is to give thought to their ways.” Furthermore, we’re assured in verse 21:5 that “the plans of the diligent lead to profit.” That wisdom certainly applies to my personal life but I’ve also experienced the benefit of a clear corporate vision at Granger. A clear vision:

  • Sets expectations and fosters unity,
  • Helps facilitate decision-making that impacts our future,
  • Creates a framework for defining ministry priorities,
  • Attracts talent (both volunteers and staff) and financial resources, and
  • Defines success for our ministry.

Agreeing on a clear vision allows you to empower others to lead and carry out ministry. It’s also a lot easier to get everyone pulling in the same direction if there’s agreement on what you’re hoping to accomplish.

You can read more on the advantages of establishing vision and values for your church in my most recent article on Pastors.com, Does your team champion clear vision and values?
