This project tells the story of a congregational visioning process and how the vision was preached in the church. In documenting the process, the narrative includes the problem that the project addresses within the church context and captures the strategic visioning work that was accomplished. In particular, it reflects on the role of preaching in the process and its function as the primary vision casting method. It also explores a theology of visioning, preaching and growth. The thesis for this project is that preaching the church’s unique vision is the catalyst for the church's peak growth. The research reflects in detail on how the project unfolded, discusses the methodology used and the ways it informed preaching the vision for the congregation. It also highlights some of the initial outcomes of the visioning process as they have reflected the vision and the work still to be done.
