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?

If someone wants entertainment they're going to the wrong place. Church is not a place for entertainment...or in my opinion a barrage of coffee and donuts. Why are churches today bringing the world INTO them? Then there's the thing with children...age appropriate??? These little guys can pick stuff up in service. Besides Jesus said Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. Mt. 19:14.

I love the intentionality here as well as the challenge to look at the data. That's missing so many times. I would like to offer a contrarian's take. Church members and regular attenders have so many ways to get information: Announcements, bulletins, social channels, relationships, and email being among the options. But brand new people are likely going to check out the website and that's it. It might be wiser for churches with limited time and resources to focus their website almost exclusively to guests. This group of people isn't looking for a calendar of events but wants to know about regular programs. They probably aren't interested in watching all of the messages but instead may want to preview one of the services. For the times we need church members to go to websites (sign up for camp, join a group, etc), we're probably better off designing and promoting a specific page rather than cluttering up the homepage.
