Discovering and Defining Your Church’s Vision and Values | Todd McMichen

Every church planter and pastor dreams big dreams! Every pastor also knows what it is like to get stuck. Then you can be at the end of one dream while staring up the mountain at another dream knowing that you have never been their before. When vision is fuzzy we can default to a plug and play ministry model or even worse we adopt the generic vision of another church. God wires each pastor and church to fulfill His purpose in unique and powerful ways. This APP Session will help you gain new tools you can take back to your leadership to develop a visionary path that will never cease inspiring and directing.
