Item description for The Vision Thing by Don K. Clements...

"The Vision Thing" is one of a series of books by Dr. Don K. Clements, founder and director of Metokos Ministries, entitled Help for Church Leaders. Books in this series are about programs, ministries and ideas to make life easier for church leaders. This book seeks to convince those who need convincing that there is a need for biblically-based vision planning in the Church. In the initial chapter, he does an extensive analysis of Nehemiah chapters 1 and 2 showing the great vision planning talent of this outstanding Old Testament leader. Dr. Clements' message is for churches of every size. He outlines the value of vision planning, which is just as important in a smaller church as it is in a mega church; perhaps more important. He urges church leadership to consider doing vision planning before it becomes tough to rebuild and move forward. Don has been leading vision planning seminars for churches for a number of years, so his advice in "The Vision Thing" comes from practical experience. His definition of vision planning is adapted, with permission, from the work of Aubrey Malphurs' book entitled Developing a Vision for Ministry in the 21st Century (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 1999). Dr. Clements' breaks the complex process of vision planning into 12 steps, clearly explaining each as he walks through his approach. Of particular interest is the set of qualities, skills and principles necessary for the recommended small group doing the primary work: a vision planning group. He then takes this concept one-step further and suggests that these same guidelines work well in the selection of a pulpit committee looking for a new pastor. Thus, he includes a special section on electing and traininga vision planning pulpit committee. In his usual easy-to-read style, Dr. Clements lays a foundation for this work by describing just what a vision plan is-and what it is not He emphasizes the role of prayer and allowing that means of grace to sanctify one's abilities to make judgments and to do planning. He gives samples of the recommended important feedback instruments and other practical tips on how to ensure that everyone in the congregation is on board with the plan.
