    Vision-Level BHAG:

    That we will be a home for x% of the international, English-speaking community in the Stavanger area and plant 20 IBC churches by our sixtieth anniversary        


    Vivid Descriptions:

    By its sixtieth anniversary, North Sea will be a household name for everyone living in the Stavanger area.  For the expats it will be seen as a place to connect and be involved in the community.  Those who have moved away will still talk about North Sea, the familial feel of the congregation, how they grew spiritually, and the energization they felt being a part of the mission at North Sea.  North Sea will be known for its biblical teaching, authentic community, cultural relevance, and love amongst its members, and all the while will have been a part of planting over twenty other international English-speaking churches, had members actively engaged in missions, and be seen as a role model to other churches within the International Baptist Convention.
