A vision is an intended destination. The Orchard’s vision is to be a place devoted to the cultivation of fruit for Christ’s Kingdom. Thus, we want to use every resource, every idea, every ministry, every dollar, every effort to introduce people to that work: bearing fruit for Christ.
A mission is how one will accomplish the vision. The Orchard’s mission is to help people Grow Deep in the love of Christ and Branch Out to others with that love. Growing Deep is the work of introducing people to Jesus and helping them grow in their understanding of the Gospel. Branching Out is helping others learn how to give their lives away through serving.
