Language for Cultivating Kingdom Culture. We become what we say. How do you grow your church in its health and mission? Sometimes our communities lack focus or vision. We lose sight of our ministry priorities, or our people don't have concrete reminders of why we do what we do. We need concise, memorable tools for cultivating culture, communicating ministry vision and developing leaders. The language we use shapes our communities. Pastors J.R. Briggs and Bob Hyatt share eighty short and memorable mantras that they use to cast vision, inspire ministry and cultivate culture. These brief chapters provide a wealth of practical wisdom for leadership, discipleship, community and witness, embodying best practices with vivid stories of on-the-ground ministry. These bite-sized ministry insights are ideal for church leaders to discuss with their teams and implement in their communities. They provide accessible handles for growing the health of your local church, for the sake of the kingdom.
"Contemporary ministry has become industrialized. Today we have reduced the mystery of God's working in the world to simple, mechanical formulas and we assume that making disciples is no different than manufacturing widgets: it's all about having the right processes. This often gets expressed in quick-fix, turnkey solutions to any ministry challenge. Unfortunately, the bite-sized morsels of leadership advice that dominate ministry today rarely contain any genuine thoughtfulness, let alone biblical wisdom. That's what makes Briggs and Hyatt so remarkable. They satisfy our cultural desire for the simple without succumbing to the simplistic. Their mantras are short and memorable but they have deep roots in Scripture, tradition, and the hard-won wisdom of saints. That makes Ministry Mantras a rare book with equal measures of depth and usefulness." -- Skye Jethani, author of With, cohost, The Phil Vischer Podcast
