Developing a Vision for Ministry
Ministry without vision is like a surgeon without a scalpel
Strong leaders have vision that is both far-reaching and focused on the details. Having that vision is what separates churches with a hodge-podge of ineffective programs and activities from churches that reach people effectively, efficiently, and consistently with the Good News. In Developing a Vision for Ministry, leadership expert Aubrey Malphurs helps you develop and define unique, realistic, and appropriate goals for your ministry. He shows church planters, pastors, and ministry leaders how to
- craft a vision statement
- communicate that vision
- encourage buy-in from influencers
- turn up the energy level
- grow the churchNow in its third edition, this groundbreaking book includes sample vision statements, helpful illustrations, worksheets, and end-of-chapter questions to move you beyond theory to practical, workable guidelines that will make a profound difference in your ministry.
