Leadership Fridays: A summary of vision for families at Summitview

I was blessed to look at this again today. It's a summary of our vision and core values as families at Summitview.

I'm posting it as a "Leadership Fridays" post because it reminded me of how critical it is to clearly and consistently remind your "team" of its objectives. What struck me was that this might actually be a little too wordy to remember and I haven't spoken of it in a while. So it's less of a statement of triumph and more of a reminder to diligently stay on target.

Revealing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world through our families.

Every member is growing in a passionate, wholehearted commitment to Jesus Christ (Deut. 6:5) which motivates their love and good deeds (2 Cor. 5:14, Titus 2:11-14). 

Families are teaming together to be involved in the Great Commission. (Matt. 28:19-20)

Husbands are committed to bear the image of Christ (Eph. 5:22-33) by leading their families into a deeper connection with Jesus (John 15:5), the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20) and the Great Commandment (Matt. 22:37-40).

Wives are committed to bear the image of the Church by trusting their God, helping and following their husband’s lead, and loving their husbands and children (Gen. 2:18, Eph. 5:22-33, Titus 2:4-5, and 1 Peter 3:1-6).

Parents are applying Biblical practices and Gospel-centered motives in training, educating and discipling their children. (Prov. 22:6, Prov. 23:13-14, Psalm 127:3-5, and Eph. 6:1-4)

Children are growing in their relationship with God, their obedience to their parents and their service to others. (Eph. 6:1-3, Col. 3:20, Prov. 23:15-25)
