Mean about vision

Spent most of yesterday with our Senior Pastor preparing for a meeting with our Leadership Team later in the week. Over the last few months we have been going through much change at Milton Keynes Christian Centre. Change is always a little difficult but is always needed where there is growth.

All through our lives we encounter change. We even experience change in our relationship with our parents. As a baby we are totally dependant on them for everything. Our whole life depends on what the do and do not do. As we grow we learn to do things for ourselves they encourage us, they inspire us. We leave home and sent up home, they support us. Then as they get older we support them. One thing is constant - change.

As our church grows, and it must for all those who don't know God, relationships change, people change, methods change but vision stays the same.

In the words of Rick Warren: Bring them in, build them up, train them for and send them out.

I have been reading some exerts from Gary Lambs blog about the churchplanters.com conference he is at. He mentioned the title of the first session. Latter found out that my friend and Pastor i grew up under Roger Blackmore is at the same conference and blogged about the same thing. Being Mean about your Vision.

We are going to have a great day on Friday planning with our new leadership team. I am looking forward to making plans but our vison stays the same.

Bring them in, Build them up, Train them for, Send them out.
