Welcome to the Vision Room

Welcome to the Vision Room! I am glad you are here, because we built this online “room” just for you.

Over the past nine years the Auxano team has focused entirely on our onsite consulting process called the Vision Pathway, helping church leaders experience the freedom and confidence that God-given clarity and well-defined vision provides. Along the way we have created tools like Church Unique which outlines our process and the Vision Deck which jump-starts great leadership retreats. But you want more.

Why? There too many content providers for church leaders who push out average-only content that does not consider your unique vision. As a result, the everyday pastor swims in an ocean of social-media content that is only digestible one cup at a time. And the cupful you reach for may or may not be helpful. Where can you go with confidence to clearly think ahead in ministry?

We believe the Vision Room is the answer. It is built on a structure that presents high-quality content in a meaningful way. Whether you are a previous Auxano client, a fan of Church Unique or discovering our vision clarity products for the first time, you will find great intentionality toward the application of your vision. How does this work on the Vision Room?

First, everything is designed around our Vision Pathway process. Have you walked it yet? If not, follow the five icons in the Discover Vision Clarity section on the homepage. Do you have your own Vision Frame living and functioning well? If so, then you will want to engage the five topics of our Integration Model, in the Live Out Your Vision section.

Second, we have curated all of our content very carefully. We have a high-quality filter and B+ work doesn’t make the cut. You time is too important and the mission that Jesus has given to us is too urgent.

Third, you can pick and prioritize your own content. That’s what MyVisionRoom is all about. Once you get your free membership “key” you can organize content and download helpful resources.

Before leaving the Vision Room, be sure to check out the amazing Sums book summaries, free for church leaders.

Enjoy the Vision Room. I hope you like what you see. More than that, my prayer is that these resources propel you forward as you pursue the unique ministry vision God has placed in you. Let’s go ahead together for the cause and sake of Christ.

While I read with great interest your introduction, several key issues are necessary. Emerging churches that open their doors and belief to a community are visions all denominations seek. I have worked to find a functionable Pioneer Mission role project in the USA or Canada that actually are willing to employ and empower open clergy who can raise awareness to revitalization of a church region or denomination. Let's talk and find ways to expand the mission you see, and hopefully this will start a new role for Open Clergy in active work.

I love Ed's writings and heart. I am frustrated by these articles, however. Much of the missiological basis of the Church Growth Movement are not mentioned, and the origination of the formulas are not substantiated. Also, the Movement via Wagner, started mentioning the importance of health over 3o years ago. I wish these articles were better researched and less sweeping in their generalizations. Things like E1, E2, E3 evangelism, group multiplication, relational networks, faith, health, and the care to measure the right things are largely missing here. Perhaps Ed has earned the right to generalize, but I still was disappointed. But keep researching Ed! Ed and Thom have continued on in the spirit of the movement by doing quality research, and for that I am deeply grateful.

This discussion will continue, for sure. I am tasked with the online worship ministry do our church at FBC Trussville and it is proving to be an important piece of the overall ministry. As in most things In life and technology, balance is in order. Many of our older adults prefer the "live" service online rather than a week or even day-later DVD or downloaded service. They tell me it is important for them to be a part while the service occurs. This is key because if a person simply wanted the message or music or to see the pastor because they "like" him, then it would not need to be live. There is a sense with our people that they need to experience the worship with their church family in real time. Theologically, folks will have issues. This is a disruptive technology for church. But I would hope that before we toss it all away we would approach it with wisdom and humility. Personally, I would like to see the Church grow through small, cost-effective ways like this and not just brick-and-mortar.

It seems this was written awhile ago but I would like to respond. Mr. Surratt makes great points. Points that should be taken seriously by all churches. I just do not think these points are the main reason people are not coming back to churches. Who knows the exact reason why anyone does not come back unless they tell you, but I can say with certainty the reasons I do not return are usually the same. 1. Love, tolerance, and acceptance. (unbelievers, baby Christians) Church members seem to want their guests or potential members to behave a certain way. They want them to conform to the system that is already in place. In some ways this is understandable. In other ways, it is isolating to the guest. They want to feel loved and accepted the way they are. They want to be told everything is ok no matter their past. They want to be given time to work out their immediate more pressing issues without having to worry about what to wear and how to talk (church speak). 2. Love, tolerance, and acceptance (believers, unchurched) Many times, these people are looking for what fits their already preconceived ideas of what "good churches" are. These preconceived notions are difficult to overcome and some of them were addressed in Mr. Surratt's article. But I can tell you that a truly loving, a truly tolerant, and a truly accepting church can overcome most of these things. You may never be able to overcome a taste in music, or a theological difference, but most everything else can be healed with Love. 3. People can see the business aspect of the church. I see it almost immediately when I walk into certain churches for the first time. I think people understand that a church has many aspects of itself that are business oriented. I just believe they dont want to experience these aspects when they visit. How many churches are so focused on growth, in numbers of bodies, that they forget the growth of the heart? The American church is now fully Americanized. Its a show and a numbers game. People come to church, especially new comers, CRAVING to fill a void in their life. If you are offering the same thing they can get in the real world, how are you any different? There are plenty of other reasons people do not return and many may not be avoidable. However, the church as a whole needs to reevaluate the arena in which they are playing. The simplicity of the Gospel is good enough to fulfill the hearts of the unbelievers and restore the prodigal's to a relationship with Christ. Love thy neighbor as thyself and love thy God with all your heart.
