The funny thing about vision is that it doesn’t have to be all that profound… does it? I think it just needs to be focused.
I really don’t know. I’m no expert. I just live what I’ve learned. There was a season in kids ministry at LifeChurch.tv (approximately 6 years ago) when our only vision for LifeKIDS was that the elementary programming simply wouldn’t suck anymore. From that simplicity grew an incredible vision for capturing kids attention.
I’m in a season of simplicity right now. Looking toward the upcoming year, the only thing I want people to embrace is that a child’s relationship with Jesus matters.
Pretty simple. Pretty straight forward. Shape every communication, every conversation, every presentation around this one theme… a child’s relationship with Jesus matters. They are not subordinate Christ-followers. Just a little shorter than we are. But the journey they’re on right now is just as important as ours.
