From an era of vision casting in the church this work is very thorough in the topics covered yet at the same time gets bogged down in details. It is not a text book that reads like one. It seems out of place in the simple church concepts that church leadership is seeking in this era of 2017. It is amazing how much has changed in such a short time. "Simple Church" by Geiger and Rainer on the otherhand has continued to be relevant in the quest to be pleasing stewards of God's provision of the church. Just over halfway through Unique I started flipping through the pages. It wore me out. There are some very helpful portions but for me they came early on.

This book offers some helpful guidance for developing a vision that leads to action rather than just looking good on paper. It lays out the groundwork for establishing the foundation for the vision and giving it a frame within which to develop. There are some good tips for communicating the vision as well. There is a lot of information here, and the process can seem complicated, so reading it slowly and/or more than once can help one digest the information better.

There are a lot of books around on formulating mission, vision and strategy, so it is rare to find one which has something new to say on the subject. Will Mancini's book succeeds in bringing a fresh and very useful perspective to the subject. He says that churches commonly neglect what makes them unique, instead gravitating towards adopting programs and mindsets that work elsewhere. A church can become truly effective only once it discovers its own uniqueness.

In my view the author's critiques of other people's strategic planning models (such as Rick Warren's Purpose Driven Church model) are a little overdone, but the book comes into its own when it starts talking about clarifying the vision. The process starts with discovering your Kingdom Concept, which is found at the intersection between your Local Predicament (the unique needs and opportunities of the location in which God has placed you), your Collective Potential (the unique resources and capabilities found in your congregation), and your Apostolic Esprit (the particular focus which most energises your leadership).

One of the imperatives of clarifying the church's vision is "framing" it. The Vision Proper is framed by the church's Mission (statement of purpose), Values (shared convictions that guide the actions of the church), Strategy (process which the church uses to accomplish its mission) and Measures (things which are measured to determine how well the church is achieving its mission). While none of these individual components is new, the manner in which the book suggests working through them is both innovative and very helpful. I highly recommend this book for church leaders.

This is one of the better church growth, missional books I have read recently. This book seems to blend the ideas of positive church growth concepts with the missional focus of the church. The book has some great ideas for congregational direction and mission. One concept was "too many goals threatens to make anyone one goal unclear." This seems to be the case in too many congregations. In years past, the idea for church growth was to added program onto program, and some churches followed this method. The problem was that the churches that were promoting this were already large churches. A two hundred size congregation does not have the resources or the manpower to accomplish this model for ministry. Instead of having bunch of goals, focus on one. The book talks about this need for excellence in one area.

Another wonderful section was concerning the history of church growth to missional. This was clear and highly helpful. I could go on about all the wisdom in this text, but really there is too much. On my Kindle I take notes, and so far this book has the most notes. There are great illustrations, clear information, and deep quotes. This book is definitely worth your time in improving and moving your congregation ahead on the mission of God. Here is one great quote, "If you want to build a ship, don't drum up men to gather wood, divide the word, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea." This book teaches how to do this.

This book gives me the handles that I need to lead our church in the direction of momentum and traction. I can't wait to put into place and practice the principles laid out in this book. I recommend it for every church leader.

Strategic planning was the preferred way forward for many churches over the last several decades, but Mancini argues it produced marginal results at best. In contrast to that well known model, Church Unique offers an alternative framework that is a better fit for the rapidly changing environment of early twenty-first century congregations. More specifically, the book's stated purpose is "to challenge you to find your Church Unique: that is, to live a vision that creates a stunningly unique, movement-oriented church" (p.xxii).

The book is divided into four main parts each containing multiple chapters designed to walk would be visionaries through a very detailed process:
Recasting Vision
Clarifying Vision
Articulating Vision
Advancing Vision

Mancini tells stories of Auxano's work with well multiple well know clients including Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, TX (Max Lucado, pastor) and Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco, TX (Chuck Swindoll, pastor) and with churches that lack a national profile. Church Unique provides a pathway that can be effectively utilized by churches of all sizes and with any denominational affiliation (including those who have no affiliation at all) because it seeks to help churches understand their past, acknowledge their present, and leverage both in service of becoming that which only they can be in the future.

I recommend this book to anyone looking to improve the performance of you team, business or church. The concepts are easily understood and replicated without diminishing the unique qualities of your group or organization. A must read for Pastors of Ministry development.
