12 Vision Templates For Your 2016 Church Planning

God Dreams: 12 Vision Templates for Finding and Focusing Your Church’s Future, by Will Mancini and Warren Bird has just been released! This practical, step-by-step guide for articulating a “distant horizon” vision for your church fills a vacuum for churches caught, often unwittingly, in a generic vision that has failed to adequately mobilize their congregations. The book’s process includes many hands-on tools for tailoring workable strategies, both short-term and long term, to articulate and achieve your church’s vision. Will Mancini, known for his celebrated book Church Unique, pulls the best ideas from his many years of church team facilitation at Auxano, the “clarity navigator” company he founded.

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.” I believe you’ll find this book to be a groundbreaking work, with a simple and powerful planning method that will bring energy and focus to your church like never before.
