In 1995, Tim Logerquist was a man with a mission. A mission to create a unified partnership with like-minded Baptist churches dedicated to advancing their collective mission under one association. It would take a clear, concise mission statement that would reflect his true purpose and engage the hearts and minds of other ministers.
ÂI had been through other mission processes and inevitably they would only take you so farÂ said Logerquist, Director of Missions for the Gold Coast Baptist Association in southern California, ÂNo one had DonÂs mission and vision process (see http://www.missionvisionstatament.com) that would get you to the heart of your mission, lead you to your vision for the future and develop your guiding principle.Â
ÂThis approach helped me sort out the questions to answer. To see within me the themes repeating themselves caused me to really focus on what I am about. I found that ÂcatchyÂ words lost the heart of it. Because of the process (discussed at http://www.missionvisionstatement.com) I soon formed the language and passion of the true meaning of what was deep within me.Â
ÂAs we continued the process I was able to align the mission and vision statements and operating principle with strategies and actions that would yield results.Â This investment proved successful. Beginning in l995 twenty churches joined in the process through the Gold Coast Baptist Association. Today, more than thirty share the mission and continue using the process to refine and reflect their shared vision for the future.
ÂWe have initiated county wide strategies that have had real impact, said Logerquist and have now identified an emerging house church movement and its correlation to transform households and communities.Â It is a testament to the commitment by Logerquist and his partners in the association that his original mission statement stands firmly today.
ÂAny individual or any organization large and small can benefit from a properly crafted mission and vision statement. Individuals, especially, create a purpose driven life, resulting in a happier, more productive structure of oneÂs daily actions,Â said Mr. Don Midgett, Managing Partner of The Genesis-Group and author of "Mission and Vision Statements: Discover Your Path to a Successful Business Future."
