Template #9: Becoming through Obedient Anticipation
• Quick Definition: Your church’s vision is to live in strategic or obedient anticipation of more clear revelation from God and with the intent to respond as He leads.

You might state it as, “We will posture our lives individually and corporately to hear from God and receive His direction for our congregation.”
• Biblical Reflections: Waiting on God, Isaiah 40:31, Hab. 2:2-3. Waiting prayerfully in the upper room Acts 1:4-5.
• Example: Moses tending sheep for 40 year, Joseph in prison, and Nehemiah mourning the state of Jerusalem are examples of strategic waiting before stepping into vision.
