New Visions is a congregational training program developed by Peter Steinke for congregational leaders. Its purpose is to establish a mission environment within the congregation that raises awareness, enhances mission vitality, and increases mission activity. Because of the amount of material to be covered, all participants are strongly encouraged to read A Door Set Open prior to the training (Books readily available from Amazon.com.) Realizing that at any given moment congregations have different needs and opportunities, the training will cover three (3) different courses of study that will allow you to deliver the material in a variety of ways.
1. All Things Restored is designed for a ten-week, one hour per week class for adults.
2. Let’s Go! is designed for a leader’s retreat.
3. Like Fire can be adapted for a number of uses - Mission School, Leadership Training, Search Committees,
Long-range Planning groups, and Mission Trip preparation.
The mission of God has churches. The church is the means whereby God reaches into human life with the word of many and the work of many. Mission happens through the lives of church members and change is inherent in mission. New Visions will look at systems and how change works so that leaders are prepared and doors are able to be set open for mission to effect change in the world. The desired outcomes include turning congregations suffering “mission drift” to a mission direction, increasing the congregation’s outputs” (services), mobilizing people’s energy in contributing to God’s Shalom, and influencing the mission of the congregation by exercising faith active in love and proclaiming the Gospel.
