How your purpose serves your mission and your vision…

Uncategorized Oct 20, 2020

Your mission is the map, vision is the road, and purpose is the engine in the car.

Purpose gives you energy, drive, and determination to climb every hill and enjoy every turn on the journey. The purpose of our lives is more compelling than personal fulfillment, peace of mind, or happiness. It defines our legacy: the way we shape people’s lives today and the impact we leave behind when we’re gone. It gives clearer, sharper definition to our reason for getting up each morning. Mission and vision let us know our lives matter; our purpose describes specifically how they matter.

A sense of purpose isn’t an aftermarket add-on—it’s essential if we’re to have full and meaningful lives. I have discovered that my life sometimes feels like a ship on stormy waters. Knowing my life’s purpose is the anchor that keeps me from drifting.

We should crave purpose like we crave food. We can’t live without a sense of relevance and significance. The search...

Why you need to regularly refine your vision

mission vision Oct 13, 2020

The mission is the map; the vision is the road to get to the destination. Your vision is made up of the nitty-gritty details that help you make real progress. Because your mission provides a framework for your life, you can lead with sharper vision when you know your mission.

Discovering and implementing your personal vision requires the process of self-discovery, establishing specific goals, and continually fine-tuning your direction. It’s a dynamic—and sometimes complex—process.

Your vision becomes increasingly refined as your purpose becomes clearer, and your purpose becomes clearer as you experience successes and failures, triumphs and defeats, joys and sorrows. A person’s vision is an organic, dynamic, growing thing.

Very few people have a clear vision from the outset of their lives and careers. Several of the great leaders we now recognize worldwide have stories that, when studied, reveal adequate response(s) to specific challenges they faced....

Why is a mission statement essential for leaders?

life mission purpose Oct 06, 2020

“How do you know if your mission in life is finished? If you’re still alive, it isn’t.” —Richard Bach

The process of discovering our purpose is as different for each one of us as our varied personalities, backgrounds, and experiences. Some of us are adventurous; others value security. Nonetheless, we must understand that the process is as important as the destination.

Some coaches have noted, “Many people live with a secret deadly fear. They dread coming to the end having lived a meaningless life.” Finding a mission and fulfilling it is perhaps the most important activity in a person’s life. A person’s mission is to live by their core values—passionately, consistently, courageously, and compassionately.

Our mission is not an addendum to life. It is the controlling force. Daily, we face multiple situations in which our mission directs our choices. It charts our overarching...

The Inevitability Of Change Is Undeniable

revival Mar 24, 2020

All leaders have deficits to address. Sometimes we lack the people, or the financial resource, or the level of competency needed to complete a task. But you can be sure that with every deficit, at the root some level of change is required. Change in giving, change in vision, or a change produced by training - but the inevitability of change is undeniable.

At the end of the day all of our success will be measured by how well we initiate, manage, and endure change. In The Speed of Trust, Stephen M. R. Covey poses that when trust is high, change is smoother, faster, and less costly. But when trust is low, change is difficult, slow and extremely costly.

With this premise in mind, we will spend some significant time discussing steps to restore and enhance the trust levels of our ministry. We must make an honest assessment of where we stand in the four core capabilities of personal trust. We must look at where we are in Integrity, Intent, Capability and Results.

  • Integrity - The ability...

The FIVE Critical Areas Of CHANGE

leadership Mar 24, 2020

As I talk to many of you and interact with leaders who lead leaders, there are six areas that seem to resonate with all of us when we think of our challenges.

They are:

  • CHANGE
  • CONFLICT
  • LEADERSHIP
  • RESOURCES
  • AGING/SUCCESSION
  • SYSTEMS

Now these aren’t listed in priority order because the level of importance changes based on your situation. However, the idea of CHANGE is a part of every area of challenge we face and if CHANGE is not expected, accepted, welcomed and properly managed it can be a huge source of stress and struggle. 

Recently while reading The Unstuck Church by Tony Morgan, I ran across five areas that may be great starting points for you to establish a level of trust and unity that can endure CHANGE. While we may not agree on every attribute of a healthy church or even on the main objectives of ministry; I think we can agree that these five areas are critical. You must define them, articulate them and be sure everyone connected to you knows what they are.
