A lot about the author. Apr 11, Paulin rated it it was amazing Shelves: An unstoppable force created to change the world. A church that is active and engaged with its community. A church that dares to cut itself free from atrophied practices and programs to flourish in creative and compelling worship. Where teachers of the Word risk reaching out to our multi-sensory, multi-layered culture with music, the arts and other unique expressions of love and faith.
A church that prospers in the life of Christ. New life comes into a church – an apostolic ethos – when it realizes its destiny is found in its early church origins. A living part of the body of Christ. Never settle for church as usual again! At Mosaic, this is our standard of worship: When our hearts are joined to God, our imaginations can be the birthplace of the dreams of God for our lives.
When God dreams, reality forms. When we dream of God, we are both transformed and become agents of transformation. You could not step twice into the same rivers. People need to know that the purpose of God burns in your heart, that people not only matter to God but also genuinely matter to you. Great leaders create great problems.
An Unstoppable Force : Erwin Raphael McManus :
Leaders create problems by changing expectations. I guarantee that the only problems erwwin will solve are ones that you engage, and the only problems that you engage are ones that you perceive.
You eerwin energize an environment in which the best ideas emerge by allowing questions, affirming ideas that are not your own, and asking questions rather than giving answers. Perhaps most important of all is inviting people into the process before you get too close. It teaches your people that you are more committed to the purpose than you are to the particular project.
And secondly, it demonstrates to them that you have integrity when faced torce failures and successes. To ask the hard question is simple. On a practical level, this is what it means to hold commitment number one — to invest your passions for God.
When a person begins to invest their service out of a love for Frce and for people, it has a magnetic effect on those around them.
When we are afraid that the minimum is an unreasonable maximum, we limit the Spirit of Christ from working in the hearts of those who genuinely desire to be used of him. This is the radical minimum standard. Sep 22, Frodo rated it liked it. I’m reading this book as part of a church study group.
Some provocative ideas regarding becoming the church GOD mcmanys in the first place. Finished this book with frustration that church-life so often seems messy and almost dis-functional. Unless creative leaders are able to do the artistic work of pulling personalities and expectations together for actual community very little health is found ujstoppable church life.

The church does not exist for its organizers.
Hemos creido que la afinidad en la membresia del cuerpo de Cristo traeria crecimiento y ello ha creado una iglesia segregada incapaz de vencer el racismo y el aislamiento.
Como formula ha fallado al entender un mundo postmoderno multicultural. Cuanto tiempo perdido sin un recurso como este. Es indispensable como plantador y lider que lo leas y medites en el. Mcmaanus 25, Susan Cottrell rated it it was amazing.
I know I rated this 5 stars thought I haven’t yet read it: He speaks with a voice of swinging off the vine into unstoppwble rushing water, to go wherever the Living Water wants to take you! It broke through to the wild and crazy life Jesus offers but few Christians grasp. Mar 04, Unsoppable rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Every Pastor, every believer.
It took me a while to work my way through this one, not because it wasn’t good, but because it inspired a lot of thinking. The chapter on Spiritual Leadership is one every Christian leader, especially Pastors, should read. The Epilogue, chapter 10, entitled Radical Minimum Standard is a chapter every believer should read. I really liked some of the things McManus brought out here, but the divergence between his descriptions, his proscriptions, and what I know of Mosaic in Los Angeles are too disparate for my tastes.
If you have innovative ideas, carry them through to their terminus! Let them subvert you! Clearly, I’m biased here. Nov 06, Brian rated it it was amazing. Every believer should read this book. If you want to know how you can impact culture for Christ, read this. If you want to plant a vibrant God centered church, read this.
