In See, Know and Serve, Tom Bandy demonstrates how our communities and congregations are changing, and how our reliance on ‘best ministry practices’ no longer makes sense. What works in one congregation won’t work the same way in another, because our congregations are so different from one another, and our communities are so diverse.
Bandy presents startlingly new ways to view congregations and communities, enabling leaders to understand the people within their reach on a granular level. The author demonstrates with real-world examples how organizations can translate this information into practical strategies and tactics. The book includes helpful charts and diagrams, making the material surprisingly easy to digest and share.
This important, groundbreaking and convicting book lays out with depth and clarity a pioneering new way forward for every church and every mission-focused organization. Tom Bandy shows how we can see the people in our communities with unparalleled clarity, so that we can serve them—fulfilling our mission—effectively.
