  1. Recognize how roles are pathways of expression for vision to be realized. (Sect. 11)
    • 1. Realizing our vision requires every part of the community taking their place and working together with the others
    • -The Israelite journey illustrates the necessity of multiple roles in a community effort
    • -Parenting is an example of multiple roles being required for a single individual
    • 2. This is applicable to the local church: certain necessary roles must be fulfilled for it to complete its mission / vision
    • - Wimber’s illustration: we must dig ditches for the water of the Spirit to flow
    • - Wimber’s diagram of “people movement” – creating a smooth highway
    • North Langley “WINES” continuum (W – win / I – include / N – nurture / E – equip / S – serve)
    • 3. We must learn to see roles contextually to achieve balance and interdependence and avoid unhealthy compartmentalization
    • -Covey: seeing life as an indivisible whole is the key to understanding
    • -Our goal in the Body of Christ is not uniformity nor independence but diversity within unity (1 Cor. 12)
    • -Clarifying and communicating roles is the key to helping people play … together
  2. Recognize how common values empower diverse roles to harmoniously work together.
    • Common values bring unity to the diversity of the different parts. They define “how” / in what manner we will pursue the accomplishment of our vision. Our real values are outcomes of our true beliefs and convictions
    • There are two main types of values:
    • 1.Core values – for the Christian these are what we care about because we believe God cares about them
    • - Venter’s hierarchy of absolutes: the more human dimension, the more humility is required
    • -Most values (even core values) are contextual applications of absolutes that comprise our centre of focus
    • 2.Stylistic values: part of the unique expression of God in us
  3. Recognize John Wimber’s list of six core values (defined at the outset of the Vineyard movement) and their descriptions.
    • The Bible
    • It is the menu not the meal; meant to form as well as inform.
    • Jesus and the Holy Spirit
    • We hold to a Trinitarian theology with the HS as the administrator of the church.
    • Relationships
    • We value “real” community and an invitational environment.
    • The individual
    • We value the individual by creating an environment of grace, and one where everyone gets to play.
    • Healing
    • We believe healing is God’s general will; and it should be practiced in a “naturally supernatural” way.
    • The Kingdom of God
    • We engage ourselves in Kingdom activities because we are part of a Kingdom that is “already / not yet” (Ladd).
  4. Recognize the two steps (and their sequence) required for intentionally building a value system within a community.
    • 1. We must begin with identifying our present values (seen by what our community actually does with its time, money and energy)
    • 2. This evaluation will show us where we need to adjust or strengthen our present values and / or where we need to build new ones
    • 2.1.1. Values are more caught than taught (the importance of modeling, discipling)
    • 2.1.2. We must reinforce our desired values simply and frequently
