Church Unique: How Missional Leaders Cast Vision, Capture Culture, and Create Movement

by Will Mancini

Church Unique offers church leaders a way to transform their vision with missional effectiveness.

Written by church consultant Will Mancini—a pioneer of a new kind of visioning process to help churches develop a stunningly unique model of ministry that leads to redemptive movement. He guides churches away from an internal focus to emphasize participation in their community and surrounding culture. In this important book, Mancini offers an approach for rethinking what it means to lead with clarity as a visionary. Mancini explains that each church has a culture that reflects its particular values, thoughts, attitudes and actions and shows how leaders can unlock their church’s individual DNA and unleash their congregation’s one-of-a-kind potential.

Whether leading a mega-church or church plant, a multi-site or mainline, a ministry or parachurch, Church Unique will provide inspiration as a practical guide for leading into the future. There is a better way.

Remissionalizing established churches can be a rough going. If leaders are to successfully steer the church through the challenges of the 21st Century, they will need help to negotiate the complexities of spirituality, culture, history, and institutional structures that go to make up organizations. Will Mancini is a savvy navigator and Church Unique is an impressive blueprint for organizational renewal.

Unique could have saved me from significant leadership blunders in the last 25 years as a local church pastor. Will’s love for the local church and his skill for facilitating the vision pathway, make this a must read. Will Mancini is a Sherpa, not a travel agent. He has the experience, he knows the trail. I have seen the process in action-it works!
