When the future King David was running from Saul, God sent hundreds of thousands of men to help him. But, perhaps the most important men in the entire army were the 200 "men of Issachar." They were the strategists who developed the master plan of battle, and they were chosen for their insight and foresight - their ability to look beyond the details of day-to-day life, discern the underlying issues, and chart an accurate course into the future. That's the Issachar factor - the ability to understand the times and know what to do. That ability - or the lack of it - will determine your church's future. With it, the future holds the promise of vibrant growth and effective service. Without it, the future leads to stagnation and decline. Glen Martin and Gary McIntosh show you how to incorporate the Issachar factor into your thinking, and secure the future of your ministry, by giving you both insight into the changes in modern society and practical ideas you can use to make your ministry more effective.
