New Visions is a training program designed to help leaders raise mission consciousness, to plan for mission, and to implement mission efforts in their congregations. Recognizing that change will be resisted less if associated with mission, the training includes effective ways to process change. Dr. Peter Steinke, who initiated the “Bridgebuilder” program for conflicted churches and “Healthy Congregations” to help leaders create and sustain healthy functioning, is the designer of New Visions.
Co-Directors with Dr. Steinke are the Rev. Paul J. Blom, who was Bishop of the Gulf Coast Synod (ELCA), and Rev. Dr. Jon R. Lee, who served as pastor of King of Glory Lutheran Church in Dallas, Texas.
New Visions is a training program for raising consciousness and action regarding mission by establishing a “mission school” inside congregations. Using Dr. Steinke’s new book, “A Door Set Open”, the study guides, manual, two DVDs and about 12 hours of training, facilitators are trained to conduct training in their own congregations or for others.
