Calling â€¦ Core Values â€¦ Vision
Page 1 of 2
IntroductionAs our ministries have spread and deepened, around the world, we have been drawn to a fresh statement of our Calling. Our diversity has increased. Our opportunities abound. Our unity is precious.
Therefore, more than 80 leaders from diverse contexts were invited to come together, some at Cyprus 2001 and others at Niagara 2002, in order to join in a process of capturing and expressing our Calling from God.
This community of leaders met in focused worship, prayer and extensive interaction. We believe that God met with us. We experienced convergence around a global Calling supported by eight Core Values and a Vision Statement. Our International Team affirmed these in May 2002, drawing from the recommendations of a consolidation group. The attached statements are received and owned by our international leadership community.
By Calling, we mean the mission to which God is calling us.
By Core Values, we mean those central motivations that are written on our hearts. They define who we are and permeate everything we do. They guide our journey. These Values need to be taught and applied in context, in ways that keep them fresh and alive.
By Vision, we mean an impression of the outcomes as we faithfully pursue our calling. This is our prayer. It paints a picture that is descriptive rather than definitive.
Collectively, we referred to the Calling, Core Values and Vision as the â€œCore.â€
