Captured By Vision Insight 024 By George Bullard
If vision is deeply felt throughout the congregation, it does not diminish when there is a transition in pastors.
This is a key reason why congregations should never want the vision they are following to be the pastor’s vision. That is a lot of power and authority to give a pastor. When the vision is primarily the pastor’s, the congregation seldom owns it.
If a congregation is captured by God’s empowering vision, deeply feels ownership, faithfully, effectively, and with innovation lives into it, then when a pastor leaves vision remains. Rather than diminishing, it may flourish as any existing staff plus lay leaders come forward to work more fervently on vision fulfillment.
