Do you really know your vision?

Most churches have a mission or vision statement, but are stuck in a trap of generic communication. Just like a visionary restaurant needs a more specific focus than “serving food,” a visionary church needs something more than biblical generalizations like “loving God, loving people” or “making disciples and serving the world.”

When a pastor doesn’t move beyond this broad sense of where the church is going, momentum is hard to achieve and sustain. The vision statement lacks meaning and people don’t feel empowered to support it. Planning becomes fruitless and the church continues with an “all things to all people” approach.

In this groundbreaking work, based on 15 years and over 10,000 hours of church team facilitation, Will Mancini reveals the 12 basic templates for any church vision. By exploring these 12 kinds with biblical backgrounds and real-time church illustrations, your team will experience break-through clarity that makes focus more achievable. Progress doesn’t have to be difficult.

This increased clarity will significantly advance a church leader’s inner confidence and outer credibility. It can pull your team together and bring unprecedented enthusiasm to your people.

You are more of a visionary than you realize. Isn’t it time to really articulate your vision? 
Will Mancini is the founder of Auxano, a growing, nationwide nonprofit church consulting group. As a recognized thought leader and church vision consultant, he leads a team of “navigators” who help hundreds of churches each year to better realize their vision. He is also the creator of visionroom.com and the author of several titles including Church Unique and Innovating Discipleship.  A seminary graduate, he has served on pastoral staff of the church where he is still an active member.

Warren Bird is an award winning author (EPA Gold Medallion and other awards) who has written or collaboratively authored 27 books for Christian leaders. With background as a pastor, he currently is director of research and intellectual capital development for Leadership Network, a 40-person-staff nonprofit that helps leading churches move from ideas to implementation to impact. He is one of the world’s leading researchers of megachurches and multisite churches.
