Strong leaders have vision that is both far-reaching and focused on the details. Having that vision is what enables churches to reach people effectively, efficiently, and consistently with the good news. In Developing a Vision for Ministry, leadership expert Aubrey Malphurs helps readers develop and define unique, realistic, and appropriate goals for ministry. He shows church planters, pastors, and ministry leaders how to craft a vision statement, communicate that vision, turn up the energy level, and grow the church. This groundbreaking book includes sample vision statements, helpful illustrations, worksheets, and end-of-chapter questions to move readers beyond theory to practical, workable guidelines that encourage a profound difference in ministry.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.
