When it comes to your ministry, whose plan are you following? Yours? The one devised by your board or a committee? Or are you following God’s plan?

According to George Barna, uncovering God’s vision for your ministry is not an option. It’s essential. When you have a clear picture from God of where you are headed, you are much more likely to accomplish God’s goals for building his kingdom and to experience a fulfilling journey along the way.

In this eminently practical book, Barna uncovers:
  • How God has shared his vision throughout history
  • How vision is different from mission
  • Common practices and beliefs that inhibit true vision
  • Actionable steps toward experiencing and carrying out God’s unique vision
  • And ways to share and promote congregational ownership of the vision

To minister with authenticity and authority, you must first clarify your vision, then make it the focus of your life’s work and the heartbeat of your church.
