"How is ReVision structured?"
ReVision is comprised of a three phase process.
The purpose of phase one, Readiness, is to prepare to implement the ReVision program within a local congregation.
The Purpose of phase two, Reflection, is to provide a church-wide forum through small groups in which the congregation participates in the reshaping of the church's vision and mission.
The Purpose of phase three, ReVision, is to formulate and affirm a
re-visioned mission for the local congregation.
"How long will it take to complete the ReVision process?"
Once you have received your ReVision package back from Percept, you should allow about five months to complete the process. This five month period includes approximately 4 weeks for preparation and recruiting of the ReVision task force, 8 weeks for the small group Reflection Series, and 6 weeks for the compiling of information, leadership retreat, drafting of the ReVision plan and presentation to the congregation.
"What role does the Bible play in ReVision?"
The Bible is the historic source of our understanding of God and what God is doing in the world. Clearly, then, a process in which we are seeking to re-vision our mission should have the Bible as its essential core. The Bible is integrated into ReVision through the Reflection series. The Reflection series is presented in eight sessions designed to include the entire congregation through small groups.
"What will we have at the end of the ReVision process?"
ReVision assists a local congregation in the development of a strategic mission plan with an emphasis on the next three years.
The outcomes of ReVision include:

A Vision Statement (Beliefs, Mission Context,
Vision and Mission)

A Three Year Plan (Initiatives and Strategies for Year One)

A better understanding of vision and its role in the mission
of a church from a Biblical perspective.

A better understanding of how mission relates to specific ministries and programs.

A better understanding of the mission environment of
a local congregation.

A greater commitment to the vision and mission of
a local congregation
