The Integration Model: Living Out Your Vision

Vision is realized only to the extent that is integrated into the life of the church, one conversation at a time. Movement is made not with great vision-casting alone, but with small, ever-present steps of integration. Once you have walked the Vision Pathway, you will need to align your organization with your newly crafted Vision Frame so that you can live it out in meaningful ways.

There are five important areas of integration that transcend the typical silos of ministry. These areas form the Integration Model:

Developing Leadership

Recruit, train, and organize leaders based on vision.

Intentional Communication

Reinforce vision with great design and clear language.

Duplicatable Process

Build systems that support and expand your vision.

Compelling Environments

Embed vision deeply into every environment.

Conscious Culture

Reflect vision by using story, symbol, and scripture.

 

Each of these areas requires intentional and focused efforts to be properly aligned with the Vision Frame. Together, they form an incredibly strong framework of alignment and movement toward your mission.

We’ve organize the resources here in the Vision Room according to these five areas of the Integration Model. Take advantage of the best thinking and learning of other leaders in these areas and apply them to your specific context.

The last church that I attended, I sat quietly observing. The Minister walked over and quietly told me that I was pious. I was offended by this remark from a man I had just met. There was a prayer service for some of the people in the church, they along with others much more intimate with the church surrounded each other, making us feel even more left out, then a second plate was placed at the doors as you walked out held by parishioners, making anyone that did not contribute feel terrible.I was smirked at when I passed without contributing. never again will I visit that church.

"The guests perceived some of the church members were faking it." Some of that is due to personality types. I'd imagine most existing members who are introverts would come across as "faking" it when greeting guests, because they probably are faking it to a degree. Doesn't mean they're not sincere, they're just uncomfortable as well. "Boring or bad service." IOW, not entertaining enough. Not sure if that's necessarily a bad thing.

I'm really trying to understand the widespread opposition to greeting each other. I am a Catholic and we have a time in the mass where we wish each other peace - no personal information, just peace. Regardless, can people honestly say they come to the house of the Lord and are surrounded by their brothers and sisters and take offense or find it wrong to greet each other in His house? Awkward or shy or whatever it is called, it seems like that would be a time to be able to get past that and at least say hello.
