Vision leaks every 6 weeks, the experts say. You need to find different ways to make sure the vision is not forgotten. The vision of church growth is what I mean. Lack of vision my people perish Bible says.
A lack of vision or emphasized vision always causes the church to dwindle. As long as your congregation knows the vision, they will invite more people. Try to find as many ways to make sure the vision of church growth is kept alive in the church.
Your vision is where you want the church to be at a particular time. For example, Vision 100 means we are hitting 100 members in attendance by the end of the year 2018.
And the Lord said to me, “Write my answer on a billboard, a large and clear, so that anyone can read it at a glance and rush to tell the others. But these things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!
This verse tells us that the vision happens slowly, steadily and surely. Your work is to put it on a billboard and make it large and clear so that your members when they read or glance at it will be reminded to keep running
