’Vision—the place where tomorrow is shaped—motivates ministry and determines achievement.’—Dale GallowayGeorge Barna says only four percent of pastors have a vision for their churches. Only four percent. That an insignificant number compared to the other 96 percent who must believe they can lead a church without any direction for the future.Because society and ministry have changed more in the last ten years than ever before, it is too easy for church leaders to become distracted, confused and lost. As a pastor, planning and passion go hand in hand with effective leadership and church growth.John Maxwell, Maxie Dunham, James Earl Massey, and others have come together with the Beeson Institute of Leadership to challenge those developing their ministry and leadership skills. Now the wisdom and insight of these Institute speakers has been written to provide every pastor a ready reference for their personal library and an effective tool for ministry. Cloth.
