Episode #41 (June 1, 2012): I can see clearly now, the Visioning has come

It’s the long-awaited podcast. Happy Ordinary Time!

  • Jane’s been leading a visioning process for youth ministry. It’s been a long process setting goals for up to 20 years in the future.
  • Focus attention to accomplish goals, rather than trying to do everything & accomplishing little or nothing.
  • Setting boundaries, saying yes or no based on whether or not somethat actually fits the vision.
  • Values were set, then the goals/visions will be based on those values.
  • Centre for Ministry Development – CCYMN – WCACYM
  • Core ideology – yin yang – balance – stability and progress – always in tension. Values create the stability.
  • BHAG – Big Hairy Audacious Goal and a vivid description of what the community would look like if the goal was achieved.
  • Get ye out of yonder comfort zone, sayeth the Lord!
  • Use the tools that work, punk. Truth does not contradict truth.
  • The Saskatoon diocese went through a visioning process recently too. Six priorities came out as areas to focus on.
  • Trees have roots. Good roots are good. Jesus said so.

  2. Ok here are random thoughts. I hate visioning in YM cuz it means a bunch of people sitting around talking about useless things when we could be out with our youth building relationships and talking about what they want and answering questions. When pastoral leader type people ask me that question, but WHHHHYYYYYY?!?!?!?!?! I tell them not to ask me, ask the young people. If I am not making a difference, they will tell you.
    Ok so yeah, visioning is cool and important and this podcast actually helped me see some real purpose behind it; I still think it needs to be done over beer and nachoes casual than pen and paper board room.

    You have such an encouraging ministry in Saskatoon tho so enjoy! I’m jealous!

    God bless!

    Hehe. Beer and nachos helps almost anything (in moderation, of course, and except for when the meeting involves the high-school aged youth. That probably doesn’t work so well. 🙂 )
