The Vision Frame is a framework for missional vision. The Vision Frame contains five components that define the Church's DNA and creates the platform for all vision casting. No leader should lead, no team should meet, and no initiative should start without a clear understanding of the Vision Frame. Just like putting together a puzzle; no puzzle should be completed without starting first with the outer edge or frame. The primary components of the vision frame are best captured in the image above. Click the questions around the frame to see the answers here.

Mission answers the question What are we doing?
Values answers the question Why are we doing it?
Strategy answers the question How are we doing it?
Life Marks answers the question When are we successful?
Vision answers the question Where is God taking us?

Vision is also known a vision proper. Our vision includes both missional mountaintop (qualitative statement) + milestone (quantitative statement). Vision proper is the living language that anticipates and illustrates God's better intermediate future.

The Vision Frame is a concept of Auxano which is articulated in the book Church Unique by Will Mancini.
