The moment we forget why we’re doing what we’re doing, we’ll lose our passion.                                             Shawn Lovejoy, author, Be Mean About the Vision: Preserving and Protecting What Matters Most

Being mean about your church’s vision is about intentionally making sure everyone is unified around the same vision. In this video session from Exponential West 2016, pastor and author Shawn Lovejoy explains what it takes to regain your passion for vision and what to do when others lose sight of what matters most. He cautions church leaders: “If you don’t continually uphold and reinforce your vision, it will drift or be hijacked.”
