Official 2014 Church Vision Statement Generator

Note from the Vision Room Curator: This post originally ran on New Years’s Eve, but it was so well-received our team decided to roll it out again today. We hope you will take a little time to enjoy this tongue-in-cheek look at church vision statements.

This last week, amidst some post-holiday-meal stupor, a myriad of Facebook feed ”name generators” caught my attention. From Elf Names to Blues Names to Wu-Tang Names, using random details to create identity has never been so easy.

In light of this, and the fact that right now, many Pastors and leaders are doing some reflecting and planning for 2014, I am pleased to present the OFFICIAL 2014 Church Vision Statement Generator (click image to enlarge).

Sadly, more often than not, it seems like actual church Vision and Mission Statements are crafted by methods just as random and meaningless.

> Truth: God has more for your church in 2014 than powerless statements disconnected from actual ministry.

This Spring, Auxano will be hosting 12 church teams as they pursue a Vision Frame for ministry that connects missional calling to disciple-making action. Together, we will pursue unique answers to the 5 Irreducible Questions of Leadership that define and align each church around its Great Commission call.

>> How will you craft meaningful vision for your church this year?

I just discovered this today and am looking forward to exploring the content on here. It looks like it could be very helpful. Just an FYI - in your paragraph on not putting out B+ material you have a typo. A little ironic. :-) The third sentence begins with "You time" not "Your time."

I'm lost, to say the least! As a new pastor, taking over a newly started church I have read just about everything there is to learn what I can do to grow the church. I truly beleive that those attending our church are friendly and sincere. So that can't be the issue. I have read all the comments to this article and I feel that most churches will never have a fair chance! We are a VERY small church, so we don't have a children's church (yet). So if a family comes and gets upset that we don't have a children's church for them to put their children into, we lose! We do provide things for their kids to do during the service and even have an option for their kids to be in a different room, if they don't want their kids to sit with them. We are also such a small church that we don't have a worship team/band/etc. Our worship music comes from music videos. The congregation we do have likes it this way, but of course we would love to have a worhsip team. So, if someone comes to our church and is upset that we don't have live music, we lose! The point I am trying to make is that when people come in with preconceived ideas of what a church should be like, they will never find a church home, unless they find a church who's goal is to entertain! Every Sunday our message comes from the Bible, so that can't be a complaint for someone, so instead, people leave the church and never come back because they want more from a church: they don't want friendly people who are following the Word of God; they want a church that give them something (a babysitter for their kid, entertainment, free gifts, etc.) I'm sorry if sound cynical, I truly want everyone to hear the Good News and learn about Christ's love, but if they come in looking for something else, then the church will always lose!
