Do you want to reignite your passion for the local church and see your congregation live out the Great Commission by growing and making disciples? If so, implementing the revolutionary Intentional Growth Planning™ operating system will benefit you, your church, and your community!

Just as laptops and smart phones have an operating system, the church needs a biblically based operating system where its various programs and activities can effectively plug in to.

In Intentional Churches, Doug Parks and Bart Rendel combine their 35 years of executive church leadership experience and unveil a proven and practical operational system that will help you: 

  • Clarify your unique vision
  • Filter trends and new ideas through your mission
  • Improve implementation abilities
  • Maintain unity and alignment around what matters most

This is a repeatable and transferable process any church can learn. Start today and be ready to go and grow through God’s power for God’s glory.
