Church Growth & Vision Barna says, “In every one of the growing, healthy churches I have studied… There is a discernible link between the spiritual and numerical growth of those congregations and the existence, articulation and widespread ownership of God’s vision for ministry by the leaders and participants of the church. Conversely, there is a invariably a clear absence of vision in those congregations in which there is neither spiritual nor numerical growth taking place.
