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.

As a former Pastor, I have seen all of these act as a deterrent to guests returning. As a Church attender now on the other side of the pulpit, the biggest deterrent I have noticed is that most people belonging to any given congregation, are not really interested in guests in the first place. They are typically satisfied if new people come and begin to attend on a regular basis but on a deep level it really doesn't matter to them if guests come and go as long as they get what they want. I have also seen this same attitude shining through in many of the self-absorbed comments in this string.

Some churches do not invite new people to be a part of groups other than to have the largest Sunday School class or they only want the original group to be on committees and boards since to ask a new person would mean they lose control. The communication problem is going to grow as more people do not talk, call visit etc. We have come to the point where everyone Important is on my facebook page in the church or all communication is done on social media. When that happens we loose those who are marginal in this area. These are fast ways to get the word out to some but all means should be used!
