One of the most difficult things about planting a church is that you are calling people to something that doesn’t exist yet. Vision is the most important tool that a church planter has to envision and call people to participate in what God is doing. Being a great visionary isn’t an innately given skill. You can grow in creating and casting vision. 

What You’ll Learn:

  • How to develop a biblical vision for your church
  • How to cast vision effectively to the people around you
  • The dual tasks of a visionary leader

“One of the greatest defeaters of momentum is a vision that is too small.” —Michael Gatlin

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. —2 Corinthians 4:16-18
