Church leaders interested in inspiring their congregations or small groups to excel and thrive should have an understanding of vision casting and why it is essential to church leadership. First, a brief definition: vision casting is the art of sharing one’s vision with those whom it will affect. Naturally, sharing a vision requires working out the specifics of that vision beforehand.

In church contexts, leaders can expect the best results from vision casting when they take the who, what, when, where, why, and how questions into consideration. In other words, leaders should be able to tell congregants what the larger plans are for their church, why these plans exist, when various milestones can be reached, and how congregants can actively participate.
