Disney’s Picture of Vision

disneyvision

This is one of my favorite Disney pictures.  I have it framed and it’s part of my office decor.

Before Walt Disney World in Orlando came to be, it was a bunch of swampland.  Walt Disney had a vision of what could be, and he had a big job ahead of him to communicate that vision to his team.

Sometimes in Kids Ministry, I can see the vision of where we are headed, but I need to communicate that vision to my team.  I can see the potential in volunteers, in the building & in the kids.  Here are some ways to paint the picture of your Kids Ministry, and the vision that you have for the future:

1.  Stay Positive – There will be challenges along the way, but don’t let discouragement settle in to get you off track for what God has planned.

2.  Stay Focused – Many things could distract you or demand your time.  As the leader, you need to stay focused on what lies ahead.

3.  Communicate – Do whatever it takes to help people see where you are going.  Draw pictures, create vision statements, tell success stories, share the dream, have meetings, and connect with key leaders one-on-one.

4.  Be Passionate – Make sure you are fired up & excited about where you are going!  If you are not excited about it, how can you expect anyone else to be?

I love looking at this poster on my wall.  What reminders help you keep the vision in front of your volunteers?
