Read full description of the books:
In The Power of Vision, George Barna invites church leaders to discover the power of God's vision for ministry. Readers will learn: how God has shared his vision throughout history, how vision is different than mission, common practices and beliefs that inhibit true vision, practical steps toward practicing God's unique vision for them, and ways to share and promote congregational ownership of the vision. Barna's word to all Christian leaders: Uncovering God's vision for your ministry is not an option. As Barna clearly states, "To minister authentically and authoritatively, you must first clarify your vision, then embrace it and make it the focus of your life's work and the heartbeat of your church." Vision is the insight God provides to instruct and direct our paths, a reflection of what God wants to accomplish through us in building his kingdom. With this clear picture, from God, of where you are headed, your chances of a successful journey are increased exponentially.
