New Visions is a training program designed for leaders to raise mission consciousness, to plan mission activity and to implement mission efforts in their congregations. Recognizing that change will be resisted less if associated with mission, the training includes effective ways to process change. Dr. Peter L. Steinke, who initiated the “Bridgebuilder” program for conflicted churches and “Healthy Congregations” to help leaders create and sustain healthy congregation functioning, is the designer of New Visions.
Co-Directors with Dr. Steinke are the Rev. Paul J. Blom, who was Bishop of the Texas-Lousiana Gulf Coast Synod (ELCA); and the Rev. Dr. Jon R. Lee, who served as pastor of King of Glory Lutheran Church in Dallas, Texas.
New Visions is a training program for raising consciousness and action regarding mission by establishing a “mission school” inside congregations. Using Dr. Steinke’s book, A Door Set Open, study guides, a training manual, three DVDs and about 12 hours of training, the trained facilitators will prepare leaders for mission.
New Visions is about change; changing you, changing your congregation and changing the world.
The desired outcomes include turning congregations suffering “mission drift” to a mission direction, to increase the congregation’s outputs (services), to mobilize people’s energy in contributing to God’s Shalom, and to influence the mission of the congregation by exercising faith active in love and proclaiming the Gospel.
Dr. Peter Steinke is offering the training at significantly reduced rates in order to introduce the training throughout the U.S.
