Intentional Churches is an invaluable resource that could single-handedly transform the impact of your church. Many have a passion to see people come home to God, but few have an operating system that complements this passion. Bart Rendel and Doug Parks bring years of hands-on experience, born in the trenches of ministry, to help leaders clarify their vision and align their passion with their practices. This is a book to read and re-read with your team to increase your impact exponentially.
In our fast-changing world, nothing is more essential (or as challenging) as leading our teams with clarity, purpose and focused goals. Bart and Doug have skillfully combined years of ministry knowledge with their incredible experience coaching hundreds of churches to craft a masterful yet accessible process to help all of us lead our churches with more efficiency and effectiveness. If you are looking to move your team from circular discussions into forward actions, ChurchOS is for you!
With lostness growing in North America, churches must become more effective than ever before at reaching their communities with the gospel. The ideas Bart and Doug share in Intentional Churches will help congregations accelerate their Great Commission efforts. Our mission is urgent. I believe as churches and individuals discover, pray for, and share the gospel with their “ONE” (as Bart and Doug describe in this book), people will meet the Lord, grow as disciples, and be deployed on mission around the world. As this happens, we will see God move through churches in the 21st century and push back lostness on our continent.
Vision drives innovation! Intentional Churches uses the power of Double Vision tension to challenge every church leader to think bigger about their church’s full gospel potential. This book uses two questions to drive your team to greater innovation: What would it look like to double our impact in five years? And, what would have to be true to make it happen? Read this book and become a multiplying church!
This book is for every leader who wants to get their lenses in the correct eyes. This book is for leaders like me, who sometimes lose focus but genuinely believe that if our vision became clear again, our plateaued or dying church could get back on track. Leaders who want to activate the Great Commission of Jesus and truly make an impact; maybe even double impact in the years to come.
ChurchOS has transformed our organization and how we accomplish our Kingdom work! A day doesn’t go by that we aren’t using the tools and ideas Bart and Doug share in this book. The Great Commission Engine keeps all of our teams and leaders aligned throughout the year. Team-based leadership is truly better. It’s a game changer to have an operating system that allows the spirit to lead and can be owned by everyone in our ministry.
