Each church works on their own visioning process—it’s not about coordinating strategies—but also gains these benefits: increased identification with other local churches (whether with your denomination or from another tribe), interaction with pastors and leaders who labor in the same mission field, and sharing the total cost among multiple churches.
Cohort visioning contains all the elements of the full visioning process. It’s perfect for smaller churches or leadership teams. It is a practical demonstration of how individual churches can work in the same city, yet avoid the pitfalls of competition or misunderstanding. Far from it, cohort visioning affirms the uniqueness of each participating church.
