The Vision One Process is a multi-phased, interlinked process that has been specifically developed to help pastors, ministry leaders, and congregations, become spiritually-healthy, disciple-making Christ followers who love God and love others. There are 7 phases to the Vision ONE process 1
Phases 1 & 2 - Pastor's Assessment and Training
The assessment phase uses Vista Assessment Process. Vista was developed out of decades of training and field tested with pastors and denominational leaders in the U.S. Our partnership with The Praxis Center for Church Development provides you expanded access to this resource.

The training phase includes participation in a Praxeum Mentored Learning Community. The Praxeum experience occurs in 9 one-day seminars (once per month) with a group of peers. For more information about the Praxeum Mentored Learning Community, click here.
Phases 3 & 4 - Leadership Team Training and Development. Phase 3 consists of 12 hours of facilitated training, over a flexible time period, for church leadership. It can begin during or after the Pastors’ Training phase. Phase 4 (LifeFlow) is a contextualized development process with focus on worldview development, pastoral development, leadership development, and pathway development.
