"Vision: Lost & Found" is the behind-the-scenes story of a church that grew from nothing to be labeled as the second most innovative church in the country--and then got stuck. Author Tim Stevens tells the story of Granger Community Church's journey through the ups and downs. You will feel their angst, but you will also smile as they celebrate significant moments along the way. You will read about the pain, the relational strain, the unbelievable mountain-top experiences, the struggle and the process that helped Granger discover a new vision that would literally redefine their church. It is not a story that is finished, either. Don't look for a nicely-wrapped ending with an "everyone lived happily ever after" conclusion. You will be encouraged by Stevens' candor and vulnerability as he unpacks a story still being written. Many churches are stuck. Some are stuck because of old ways of thinking; some because they can't figure a way out; others because they are happy not changing. "Vision: Lost & Found" will challenge your paradigms, inspire your heart, stretch your thinking and give you tangible tools to help your church take its next step.

About the Author:

As a pastor at Granger Community Church since 1994, Tim Stevens' leadership has helped them connect with people who think church is irrelevant. He has done this through the creative blending of architecture, strategy and technology. He's acutely tuned in to pop culture and is instrumental in balancing operations, building creative teams and inspiring artists to brand each message series and sharpen the guest experience. Stevens has co-authored three books in the "Simply Strategic" series, is author of "Pop Goes the Church" and the brand new release, "Vision: Lost and Found". You can connect with Tim at LeadingSmart.com, on Twitter @timastevens, or at facebook.com/tstevens.

Review:

"Vision: Lost & Found tells the story of a church daring to question long-held paradigms and imagine a new way to impact their community. Tim Stevens reveals the good, the bad and the ugly of their journey. Every church leader who reads this book will walk away thinking differently." -- Alan Hirsch, Author of The Forgotten Ways

"Anyone in leadership at a church going through a difficult transition can relate to Tim Stevens unblinking retelling of his gut-wrenching journey at one of the most recognizable churches in America." -- Geoff Surratt, Director of Exponential

"Whether your church is large or small, traditional or contemporary, 'Missional' or 'Attractional,' there are practical ideas and helpful strategies in Vision: Lost & Found that can help your church take its next steps to more powerfully and effectively reach people for Christ." --Joel Mikell, President, RSI Church Stewardship

"Church leaders today are addicted to product when real meaning is found through process. That's why Tim Stevens has just delivered a 'must read.' Honest and compelling, the story of Granger is one of the best snapshots of a visioning journey you will find." --Will Mancini, Founder of Auxano, Author of Church Unique

"With rare authenticity and genuine openness, Tim Stevens courageously writes about the good times of dramatic growth and the challenging times of economic struggle, decline and blurred vision. Every church leader needs this book because we have all been there or will be at some point." --Dave Ferguson, Pastor, Community Christian Church
