What We Do

The Vision Framing Process

Here's why almost everyone we work with starts with a Visionary Plan for Real Church Growth.

Most organizations working with pastors and churches give you a cookie-cutter plan “that works” or import someone else’s vision or process. It almost feels like you have to keep up with the “church Joneses.” But you aren’t called to be another church and you aren’t that other church’s leader. You’re called to be you.

Very simply, we facilitate our “Vision Framing Process” to help churches create and implement a Visionary Plan for real church growth.

The foundation for Auxano’s vision framing process is based on the principles outlined in the celebrated book, Church Unique. Through the process church teams from every major faith tribe have discovered unprecedented clarity around the unique identity of their church. Working from that clarity, they develop actionable plans for articulating, planning, and integrating vision into their culture.

One of our trained Auxano Navigators comes to your church, multiple times over several months, and leads you and your team through this breakthrough process.

A church walks away with two things:

  1. Custom built Vision Frame
  2. A Real Church Growth Action Plan

Real vision. Real action. Real results.
