Visions for the city / council of govts, chambers of commerce, other particular constituencies, the media who reflects and shapes (op ed)

ACTS – origin / unity

a common mission and a spiritual, geographic and economic connectedness

Need for third party backbone organization / quote from Stanford Innovation review

Five key conditions for success = “creating and managing collective impact requires a spate organization with staff and a specific set of skills to serve as the backbone for the initiative and coordinate participating organizations and agencies”

Why? people are powerfully tribal in their thinking and doing

City Community Culture Church

Advancing – mobilize and catalyze unified Christian initiatives that demonstrate and communicate the love of Jesus Christ

Extreme Home Makeover – Home Edition / appeal / Ty Pennington - Move That Bus

Cities, communities, culture

How will you know?

Moving the needle / data = how it was, what you’re after and what you will do

RFK – “Some people see things as they are and say why? I dream things that never were and say, why not?”
