The Rev. Jay Lawlor discusses "Values, Purpose, and Vision" as part of his Congregational Vitality Project

The Rev. Jay Lawlor looks at the mark of a healthy congregation which knows itself and moves forward in discussing values, purpose, and vision.

The work around values, purpose and vision need to be rooted in our understanding of God’s mission, and our call to live into the promises of Baptism.”
— The Rev. Jay Lawlor

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, US, March 9, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Rev. Jay Lawlor addresses how vital congregations articulate their sense of values, purpose and vision toward knowing themselves and moving forward as communities of faith. He writes on his website:

"The work around values, purpose and vision need to be rooted in our understanding of God’s mission, and our call to live into the promises of Baptism. Framing the conversation around how Jesus gathered community, formed disciples, and how those disciples lived into God’s mission as the Body of Christ can begin grounding a theological definition and understanding. Asking questions about how we live as a generous, loving, service-oriented community who follow Jesus today expands the theological imagination for faithful engagement of the Jesus movement into the future."

The Rev. Lawlor continues by looking at the three areas of Values, Purpose and Vision and congregation survey tools to assist in the process. Readers can learn more at https://www.therevjaylawlor.com/missionprojects/congregationalvitality/valuespurposevision/
