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 Him, of where you are headed, your chances of a successful journey are increased a thousandfold.

From the Back Cover
In this new edition of a modern classic, George Barna defines vision as the "clear mental image of a preferable future imparted by God to His chosen servants based upon an accurate understanding of God, self and circumstances." The writer of Proverbs adds that without this clear image of the future, people suffer--wandering in circles and in desperate need of a Godappointed leader to point the way forward. But how exactly do leaders catch the clear vision of God's future? In The Power of Vision, Barna offers practical, proven tools for capturing, casting and implementing God's vision for your ministry. Pointing to the examples of visionaries both ancient and modern, he uncovers patterns and principles that will help you understand, communicate and accomplish the unique vision God has in store for your life and church. In the process, you will gain insight into your own giftedness and motivations, get perspective on your ministry's history and condition, and draw closer to the God who has chosen you to catch His vision.
