    Thanks Pastor Rick. I am always blessed whenever I read of you. I pray for more grace to you.

    Pls, is there any way to allow us read your sermons online freely?

  • Basically, we need to let people know – Who, When, Where, What, Why and How.

  • Pingback: 7 Ways to Help Others Understand the Vision | Pastor Leaders()

  • Great stuff; this and Wil Mancini’s article on “uncaging the vision.”

    One trick I’ve learned about vision casting: teach the church leadership team and each ministry leader how to cast the vision within their circle of influence. And then the pastor has to communicate the vision in as many different ways as possible – be creative. Help them to see, feel, taste, hear what the fulfilled vision will be like!

    And when you’re sick of communicating the vision because you fear you’ve become repetitive, and that they’re tuning you out – that’s when they’re only just beginning to “get it.”

    Then, once they start to get it, it’s time to do a complete ministry audit of everything the church does to make sure they all fit with the vision. Revamp as needed.

    Next year, rinse and repeat.

    It’s unsafe to share vision these days, even with Christian leaders. Just too many dogs.

    Good stuff and very practical. May I add two more short and helpful suggestions;

    First – write this down, pray over it, revise and continue to percolate over it till it settles. During the percolating stage share it only with a few close friends. Once it settles, then you can cast a wider vision.

    Second – be able to share God’s call and vision for you within 3 minutes verbally. I met a very committed and energized person the other day and it took her almost 15 minutes to explain her ministry. While all the information, stories and passion were exciting almost no one would stick around to listen. They may sit through it but they changed channels long before she got to the good part.
