Vision & Strategy for the Border & the Baja
Lately I’ve been revisiting the vision and strategy for our team as we seek to make an impact for the kingdom on border and the Baja. God has given me some wonderful coaches to guide me through the process.
Part of my desire is that our strategy would be clearer. Today we had a team meeting and we talked about the draft I came up with, and it was obvious that it’s not clear enough yet.
One of the men coaching me said that he liked our team’s mission and vision, but that our strategy was a little hazy. How are we going to accomplish our vision? That question needs to be answered with a degree of clarity.
It’s not that we don’t have a strategy, but I haven’t articulated it in a way that is easy to grasp.
As I’ve spent time in prayer and sought to answer this question,d God has me dreaming. I love to dream about what God might do! I look forward to what he will do.
Pray with Us!
Please join me in prayer as I look to the Lord for a God sized kingdom work. I’m thinking through what is the best way for us to carry out the vision the Lord has given us. Ideas come to mind, and much of this is already in process which is exciting. It’s not a complete overhaul, but more of a refining process.
God has brought to mind this passage from Ephesians, “Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20, ESV). This passage challenges me, and it leads me to cry out, O Lord, that there would be explosive growth of your church on the border and the Baja. Help us to catch the wave of what you are doing here. We want this work to be Spirit led and Spirit empowered. O Lord, hear my cry, hear our cry.
This gets me pumped up, because Paul says in this passage that it’s not just more than we ask or think, but abundantly more. God is a God of abundance, not a God of scarcity. He tells us to ask, and we will receive. So Lord, I do ask that you would surprise us, and do something magnificent here, and let us be a part of that.
Dawn and I appreciate you as you join us in prayer. We need prayer for clarity of vision and for the strategies that we are working on. We truly want to keep in step with the Spirit as we plan and strategize. This is our hearts desire – join us as we seek direction from our Lord and King eternal.
In His Grip, Dave
