Theme Collaboration 2015

So far, we have defined the patterns of the women coming to PWOC as:

1. Young in the faith

2. Disconnected

3. Focused inward on being served rather than serving

We have also defined the patterns of these womens’ needs as:

1. Finding their identity in Christ

2. Discipling each other in the Word

3. Serving each other in need

Our next process is to create a vision statement that will lead to strategies, and from that, we can choose themes and graphics.Helpful vision reminder

Vision Statement: (Desired End-State) A one-sentence statement describing the clear and inspirational long-term desired change resulting from an organization or program’s work.

A vision statement needs to
• …be easily explained by those involved
• …be clear and simple (most aren’t)
• …avoid elaborate language & buzz words
• …not be confused with a mission statement

See examples of 30 top vision statements here

You might recognise these Christian organisations.  Here are their vision statements:

  • Barna.org: “provide people with credible knowledge and clear thinking, enabling them to navigate a complex and changing culture.”
  • Chic-Fil-A: “To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us and to have a positive influence on all who come into contact with ChickfilA.”
  • Perimeter Church, Atlanta:To make and deploy mature and equipped followers of Christ for the sake of Family, Community and Global transformation”

State your suggested vision statement(for PWOC in general) in as few words as possible.

Below are the previous parts to this process for review if needed
