Living the Vision

Living the Vision: Leadership & Community (Faith & Life Press, 1997).


God calls us to be
followers of Jesus Christ and,
by the power of the Holy Spirit,
to grow as communities
of grace, joy, and peace,
so that God’s healing and hope
flow through us to the world.
(adopted 1995)

To assist individuals and congregations with living into this Vision Statement, the Mennonite Church designed a three-part study series that combined Bible study, creative group activities, personal reflection, and hands-on application exercises.

I was privileged to work on the second volume with Ken Hawkley, who was the director of adult and young adult education for the General Conference Mennonite Church. This book served its purpose and is now out of print.
