An Indispensable Road Map for Discovering Core Values Dec 22, 2004
I haven't read a book yet by Malphurs I haven't liked. Here, in the second edition of this title, he presents a road map for discovering individual and institutional core Christian values. He defines core values as those unique intangibles that drive people and ministry organizations, and highlights their critical nature in planning for future undertakings. This book elaborates upon the core values chapter found in his wider-focused title, "Advanced Strategic Planning: A New Model for Church and Ministry Leaders."
Discovering individual and institutional core values is an invaluable part of ministry planning, and this book offers a wealth of insight on the topic. This work is definitely worth the affordable price.
Note: the first edition of this title is also available to purchase here on this site. Both editions are good, but I recommend this second one.
Leadership Values are key to any ministry's success Dec 11, 1998
As a single adult pastor, I have been looking for a book that would be a guide in casting a vision for our ministry for the next 1, 3, and 5 years. Values Driven ministry does an excellent job of taking the reader back to see what drives a God-given vision--it is our biblically based values. (I strongly suggest you also read Malphurs' book: Developing a Vision for Ministry in the 21st Century--it is an incredible companion to this one). Since each of has been uniquely made in God's image we will "see" things differently and, yet, our biblically based values shape and are our basis for ministry. This is where in our uniqueness we are actually drawn together for the glory of God. The book does an excellent job of discussing in chronological order the following leadership and vision matters. CH.1: The Importance of Core Values; Ch. 2: The Definition of Core Values; Ch. 3: The Discovery of Core Values; Ch. 4: The Development of Core Values; Ch. 5: The Communication of Core Values; Ch. 6: The Implementation of Core Values; Ch. 7: The Preservation of Core Values. What is especially helpful is that both personal and corporate core values are blended together in discussion format. Two levels are being addressed at the same time; one, is to help leaders define their own personal vision for ministry; two, leaders are being guided to define their ministry's core values as well. This book has been an oasis for this thirsty pastor! I would have liked to have been able to study it in a seminary leadership class.
