A ministry cannot operate without a clear idea of God's direction. Many members within the organization have ideas to move ahead for the future. There are also community needs to consider... Everything looks fragmented—a piece here, a piece there, colliding, coming together and then quickly fading.
How can your ministry turn this kaleidoscope into a clear picture, reflective of His purpose?
The desired outcome of VisionPath is clarity for your ministry's vision, enabling alignment of resources and ministry that is fresh, effective and connected to the community.
A one-time, half day VisionPath event at your site will be guided by a trained LCEF facilitator. Your members will focus on questions such as those to the left.
Through questions like these and facilitated discussion will lead your ministry's VisionPath team to:
- refine and communicate a clear direction.
- develop strategies and approaches consistent with a clear direction.
- conduct an optional Covenant Event, inviting all members to join, commit and celebrate the renewed vision.
Just as ministries need focus and a clear picture, so do the leaders. They often ask what is God's purpose for them and how does it relate to their ministry. Who encourages pastors when they seek personal growth in leadership, life balance, transition and spiritual direction? How do they keep moving forward and in step with the changing needs of ministry?
This process offers professional and personal renewal through one-on-one sessions with highly respected, ministry-tested pastors. Pastors have a partner who walks with them and know what they face.
Coaching is a great investment for congregations and pastors who desire to minister in today's rapidly changing culture. They discover their strengths and keep their focus.
Pastor Coaching helps pastors:
- Grow in Christ.
- Set ministry goals.
- Enhance leadership skills.
- Discover personal strengths.
- Clarify God's purpose for their life and ministry.
- Build confidence and courage.
- Prepare for challenges.
- Avoid "clergy burnout."
Pastors should consider pastor coaching when deciding how to strengthen the vision for their ministry.
