Ministry Velocity: The Power for Leadership Momentum


WPH 2010

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Pastors and church leaders often find the velocity of ministry to be a challenge. Sometimes it comes much too fast; other times it’s way too slow. How can you lead a church that is stalled to begin moving again in the right direction? And then, when you experience success, how do you maintain and harness that momentum to effectively lead the church to its next level?

Wayne Schmidt addresses both angles of the ministry velocity challenge and offers scriptural strategies for sustainable momentum. Based on biblical principles rooted in the leadership of Joshua, Schmidt teaches pastors how to lead through every phase of momentum, so that the church can capitalize on its God-given opportunities.

This highly practical volume provides pastors and church leaders much needed insight on understanding how to anticipate, create, and maintain ministry velocity.

Whether you are just beginning or are a veteran of the ministry, Ministry Velocity: The Power for Leadership Momentum is the perfect guide for improving the quality, focus, and effectiveness of your ministry. With the Logos edition of Ministry Velocity: The Power for Leadership Momentum, you have easy access to Scripture texts, along with a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Hovering over Scripture references links you instantly to the verse you’re looking for, and with passage guides and a wealth of other tools from Logos, you can get into God’s Word and discover biblical insights on church leadership like never before.
