Overview

Many otherwise well-trained pastors are often unprepared for actual leadership in the local church. Effective leaders must know how to provide direction, and the key to a leader's direction is one's mission. This new work on a crucial ministry topic—mission—is addressed by a recognized leader in the field. In his practical step-by-step style, Malphurs presents a workable definition of a mission statement, its "custom-fit" development for each ministry, and its implementation through a carefully refined ministry strategy. As Malphurs explains, "The act of leadership is fundamentally the act of articulating first a ministry mission statement and then pursuing it.… Therefore, the purpose of this book is to help you as leaders develop and articulate a definitive, well-thought-out mission statement for your ministry."

Praise for the Print Edition

Do you need a church statement? Are you trying to find help in determining one? Then look no further, for this title by Aubrey Malphurs will guide you through the process. After stressing the importance of a mission statement, the author carefully defines what a mission statement is and isn't. He then instructs the reader as to the ways to develop a mission statement, to communicate a mission statement, to implement a mission statement, and to preserve a mission statement. Having an entire congregation "on the same page" for ministry is a tremendous help in mobilizing a congregation to work together in Christian service. A mission statement establishes that common ground. For any Christian leader involved in strategic planning, this volume is well-worth the small investment in time and money.
