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.

Misguided member to be sure. Best course of action for pastors is to preach God's pure word, plant the seed, and God will bring the increase.

This article reminds me of an experience I had. In my third year at the parish I pastor I needed to make some staff changes. During that process I was constantly praying for insight and enlightenment. Some old time parishioners did like that I was making these changes. They did not like the growth that was happening and did not want any change. This group parisioners decided to protest by only putting a dollar a week in the collection. The most incredible thing happened, during the weeks they were protesting the parish collection went up by over 5%. Now as any pastor can tell you all collections fluctuate, but while people are deliberately trying to hurt the parish or more to the point hurt me, this was a blessing. This reminded me that if I pray and I try to do what I believe God is telling me to do, God will take care or me and my people. Pastors that are trying to do God's will, put God's will first and don't be bullied by people trying to lead you away from God's will.
