Week 5 Conversation Guide: Vision that Overflows
Vision that overflows is good, bountiful, extending and blessings. Overflowing vision says, “Let it go!”
Template #10: Overflowing through Leadership Multiplication
• Quick Definition: Your church’s vision is to develop more leaders so that God can direct them where he wants them to go. You might state it as, “We will raise up and release leaders to accomplish whatever God calls them to do.”
• Biblical Reflection: Jesus’ ministry gives an example of leadership multiplication. He spent his time mostly with 12 and even more time with three. Those leaders multiplied in the formation of the early church. Mark 3:14–15; Galatians 2:9; Luke 10:1
• Examples: ARISE School of Evangelism is a 13-week discipleship training school. ARISE exists to make disciple-making disciples.

Template #11: Overflowing through Cultural Replication
• Quick Definition: Your church’s vision is to replicate its model, whether via multisite or other forms, spilling over to many places, new franchises, and new brands of “our” kind of ministry, vision, and brand. You might say it as, “We will expand our influence by planting more campuses or church expressions that carry our ministry philosophy, and brand.”
• Biblical Reflections: The church in Thessalonica imitated others churches (1 Thess. 1:6-7; 2:14) Paul had a church culture that he replicated through his missionary journeys (1 Cor. 7:17).
• Examples: New Life Church throughout Kitsap County. Not common in Adventist churches.

Template #12: Overflowing through Anointing Amplification
• Quick Definition: Your church’s vision is to do all you can to leverage and amplify the impact of a particular leader, often someone who is a stellar teacher. You might express it as, “we will promote the special gifting and anointing of a person whom God chose to make a unique contribution to the church and the world.”
• Biblical Reflections: God has biblically raised up people; kings, prophets, judges, warriors… all called for “such a time as this” (Esther 4:14). These people had special callings and the faith groups around them were called to support them in a way that would amplify their calling.
• Example: The special giftedness and platform of speakers for programs like Breath of Life, Faith for Today, Voice of Prophecy, and It is Written.
