A Pastor's Dilemma: What to Do When You Can't See the Vision for Your Church - New Small Church
You can’t have a great church without a great vision. That’s what I’ve been told. And you can’t have a great vision unless the pastor (always the pastor) casts a singular vision for the church, then sells that vision to the leadership and the congregation. I’ve been told that, too. So I did – or tried to do – what I was told. For years, I prayed, worked, searched the scriptures and listened to God in every way I know. I begged him for a vision that would carry our church to vast, new expanses of glorious ministry. But it never quite worked out that way.
