BOOK HIGHLIGHT — Finding a Vision for Your Church: Assembly Required by Michael A. Milton

Finding a Vision for Your Church: Assembly Required by Michael A. Milton

256 pages | $14.99 | Paperback | SAMPLE CHAPTER | Kindle/Mobi: $9.99 | iTunes/ePub: $9.99

About

The church is more than a building—it is an assembly of people joined together across distances and even through time to fulfill God’s purposes in the world. Each local gathering of that assembly needs a vision to help its members accomplish the work God has called them to do.

But how do you inspire your church to create and follow through on a vision?

Mike Milton provides tested, biblical ideas to get everyone in the church involved in a plan to help the congregation grow. Each chapter develops an awareness of what needs to be done, provides questions for review, and includes prayers by elders and ministers of churches that have put these ideas to use.

 

Endorsements

“Mike Milton has brought to the table not only his extensive experience in leadership and lessons learned in pastoral ministry, but more importantly faithful, biblical insights for the spiritual vitality of the church. . . . I’m extremely excited about this resource, which I highly commend to you.”

—Harry L. Reeder III, Senior Pastor, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, Alabama

“Instead of doing ministry as everyone else does or as some other stale pattern suggests, why not let the Master of Ministry instruct us? Dr. Milton knows that Master well, and it shows.”

—David W. Hall, Senior Pastor, Midway Presbyterian Church, Powder Springs, Georgia
