• I would add a fifth:

    #5: Uncaging vision requires extensive delegation.

    If the pastor is the only one casting vision it will take a long, long time for people to “get it.” But if the pastor trains, delegates and holds accountable the rest of the leadership team people catch on much more quickly. Train your leaders to pound the vision, pump the vision, talk up the vision every chance they have. Every ministry leader should be tasked with auditing their ministry or program in light of the vision and should receive help making needed changes.

    This goes back to an old adage I learned in sales: “If I tell you, it might be true. If you tell others, it is true.”
