Product Description

Any churches want to make the transition form an inward to an outward focus, from catering to the needs of members to reaching out into the world to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Too often they try to accomplish this radical change by taking half steps and particle measures, initiating a new program here or adding new staff members there. Yet this kind of change requires more. To succeed in changing its core focus this way, a congregation must learn strategic thinking; it must commit itself to seeing the big picture and to taking the steps necessary to paint that picture afresh. Everyone-including pastors, lay leaders, key teams and groups, the whole congregation, and its judicatory or denomination-must be involved in a process of transformation. Paul Borden, author of Hit the Bullseye and Direct hit knows that this transformation will not be easy. But if the target is brining more people into saving relationship with Jesus Christ, what could be more worthwhile.

Publisher's Description

Learn the “Big Picture” approach that will aim your congregation at the mission field in your back yard, or around the world.
Many churches want to make the transition from an inward to an outward focus, from catering to the needs of members to reaching out into the world to make disciples of Jesus Christ. Too often they try to accomplish this radical change by taking half steps and partial measures, initiating a new program here or adding a new staff members there.

Yet this kind of change requires more. To succeed in changing its core focus this way, a congregation must learn strategic thinking; it must commit itself to seeing the big picture, and to taking the steps necessary to paint that picture afresh. Everyone, including pastors, lay leaders, key teams and groups, and the congregation as a whole must be involved in a process of transformation. Paul D. Borden, author of Hit the Bullseye and Direct Hit, knows that this transformation will not be easy. But if the target is bringing more people into saving relationship with Jesus Christ, what could be more worthwhile?

    Paul Borden writes from personal experience as one who has helped a number of local churches get back in the game of doing what the church was intended to do. His vision is to bring change that will impact lives by getting Christians off the sidelines and actively involved in the mission field. Lest you confuse that to mean missionary work in some foreign country, let me clarify: the mission field begins right outside the doors of every church and goes all the way around the world. The process is not a one size fits all approach, because every church is different much like every person is different. The book is not intended for casual reading but rather as a guidebook to help denominations, associations, and other church entities to get focused on the process and systems involved in making this happen in a local setting. With so many churches struggling to stay alive, every denominational leader should read this book.
