Get some clarity on your Pastor’s/Leader’s vision and keep it.
If you don’t understand it completely it’s okay to ask, just don’t be rude. Once you got the heart of the vision, you own it (it’s your vision too, now), your implementing strategies to see the vision played out in the natural, now the next step is to keep it in focus. It’s easy to get distracted by all the “crisis” that seem to come up. It’s easy to get distracted by the holidays, and the baby showers, and the nursing home visits and even the prayer groups. Keep the vision in focus during all these things. I’m not saying abort all the ministry opportunities (some call them problems). I’m saying keep the vision in these things.
