The idea of the “S” curve was novel, and kalphurs. It also gives you the tools you need for strategic planning, including 14 appendices that can be easily modified for use in your local ministry setting.

What needs to change, be removed, or started in order to better match our values and vision in the fulfilment of the mission? I will also recommend it to the seminary students I startegic the opportunity to mentor from time to time. Great resource to have on the shelf, however.

It addresses the reasons for strategic planning, both theological and practical. Aug 10, Danny Bennett rated it it was ok Shelves: A great resource with lots of quality information, but quite dry.

The Power of Vision: While Malphurs devotes the last portion of the book to the “setting” of the church, including its building and grounds– and how to run a capital campaign to finance construction– he warns readers up front that a plan to build a building without the greater focus on mission, vision, and strategy to fulfill the mission will likely end in an unused building that reminds members of a previous pastor who is no longer there.

I can say I highlighted more passage in this book more than most, there is much that’s helpful. The author provides a very thorough and textbook like explanation of meeting a church through change. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
