Should the congregation or the pastor set a church’s vision?

Thirty.Network’s Kevin Nguyen and DJ Chuang shared a breakout session about “Asian Americans Leading Well in a Multiethnic World” at the 2016 Asian American Ministry Conference and collected a handful of questions that will be answered in a series of videos on this blog.

This question was posed by one of the participants:

“We are a new church planting looking for a lead pastor. We have a core of 18 leaders, who’ve set the draft vision and mission, but like wet concrete, it’s not fully formed, not set yet. Our Asian culture “feels” like we need our lead pastor to finalize and set the church mission & vision. Will this be helpful or hindering to finding a lead pastor?”
