Church Unique Book

Church Unique, written by church consultant Will Mancini, helps churches develop a unique model of ministry. This process guides churches away from an internal focus to emphasize participation in their community and surrounding culture. 

Church leaders are offered an approach for rethinking what it means to lead with clarity as visionaries. While a congregation will discover how to unlock its DNA and unleash their unique potential. 

Discover the pitfalls churches often fall into as they attempt to grow and learn how to replace these traps with a new model for vision casting and church growth. 

Leaders in all sizes of churches are utilizing this process, including:

  • Mainline
  • Evangelical
  • Non-Denominational
  • Church Plants
  • Multi-Site Congregations

The practices and ideas outlined in Church Unique will help leaders develop missional teams, articulate unique strategies, unpack the baggage of institutionalism, and live fully into their vision.
