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.

Or, contact us to set up a consultation  with a trained Auxano Navigator that can walk alongside you as you align your organization with your Vision Frame.

The general principles here might not apply to all social media situations. The illustration used in the post was Twitter, not a public Facebook page. In that case I think (I am not an expert on Facebook at all) that negative comments should be curated and deleted.

Thanks Will. What about a CHURCH Facebook page (not "Will Mancini" but "Main Street Church" Facebook page). If someone posts on my church Facebook page, "This church stinks because of they don't like children!" ... at that point I'm thinking the church probably ought to post ONE well-thought-through response - not ignore it. Is that right in your eyes, Will?

Church is to bring in the lost, to save souls. If you're a believer and come to a church to seek what it can do for you, instead of what you can do for the church, then your in it to be served and not to serve. It's not about you and what you want, it's about the Kingdom and glorifying God. Do your part to help not to run because you don't feel good about the church. True Christians seek God in Spirit and in Truth, all others are seeking a savior and need help getting to there destiny. Help to do the vision, not criticise others for not doing it the way you want. We are one body with different parts moving towards the same purpose. Salvation!!
