Product Description

Most churches have a mission statement, but it's often so vague (e.g., "loving God, loving people") that members find little to rally around. After 15 years of research and consulting, Will Mancini has come up with 12 major templates in God Dreams so your church can break through to clarity and reach achievable goals.

Publisher's Description

Is your team excited about the next big dream for your church?
 
You are a visionary leader and your church probably has a vision statement. Yet most churches are stuck in a trap of generic communication without a truly visionary plan. 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."
 
When a team doesn’t share an understanding of God’s next big dream, leadership grows tired, overworked by an "all things to all people" ministry approach. Too often there’s no unified picture of what success looks like. People can feel uninspired and your church’s programming can seem more optional than ever.
 
Ministry without clarity is insanity. Are you ready for a better way?
 
In this groundbreaking work, based on Will Mancini’s 15 years and over 10,000 hours of church team facilitation, God Dreams reveals a simple and powerful planning method that will bring energy and focus to your church like never before.
 
First, God Dreams shows how to reclaim the role of long-range vision today by providing 12 vision templates, each with biblical, historical and contemporary illustrations. These vision starters will dramatically accelerate your team's ability to find complete agreement regarding your church's future.
 
Second, God Dreams explains how to overcome the fruitless planning efforts that many church teams experience.  With a tool called the Horizon Storyline, leaders can connect short-term action steps with the long-range dream, while leveraging the power of storytelling to make the plan "stick."  This tool will galvanize a diverse team of ministry leaders and volunteers with unprecedented enthusiasm.   
 
Imagine leading with a refreshed sense of freedom and confidence, with a totally new way to inspire your church. Imagine the ability to harness the energy and resources of your people towards a specific dream of gospel impact, in your church and in your lifetime.
 
God Dreams is your passport to leading into a better future.
