Do you need a church mission 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 church planning, this volume is well-worth the small investment in time and money.
