Andy Stanley, senior pastor at North Point Ministries in Atlanta (and one of the co-founders of the Catalyst Conference) wrote a book in 1999 entitled "Visioneering." Stanley calls it a new word, an old concept, and a familiar process.
The book weaves the story of Nehemiah and his leadership in the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem into leaders today who want to find a clear, God-ordained vision for each of the roles they play.
While the book stands alone on its own, I find it an appropriate launching point for the next few days of blog posts. I'm headed to Catalyst X in Atlanta tomorrow, accompanied by my wife, our 21 year old daughter, and 17 year old son. We've been looking forward to this for months. We're expecting powerful moments of worship. We will hear men and women bringing clear messages from God. We will meet new friends. We will be challenged to move beyond where we are to what God has planned for us.
We will be visioneering.
Visioneering = Inspiration + Conviction + Action + Determination + Completion
Catalyst X begins tomorrow morning...stay tuned!
