Publisher's Summary

Beyond Thingification will help you get clear on your church’s mission and help your church do ministry that really matters.

Leading churches is so much harder than it used to be. You used to be able to grow by improving the preaching or the music or the children’s ministry. But that’s just not the case anymore. That’s frustrating! And it makes us feel like failures. Eventually, most of us realize that getting our churches to be bigger and better is not God’s top priority. We begin to understand that what God really wants is to heal the world.

The problem is...it’s so hard to know how to do that today.

In Beyond Thingification: Helping Your Church Engage in God’s Mission, Markus Watson:

  • Describes the historical background that got us to where we are
  • Explores the mission to which all of us have been called
  • Presents a practical way to discern how God is calling your church to participate in the healing of the world 

As you listen to Beyond Thingification and implement “vocational connection groups", you will:

  • Help your church meaningfully engage in God’s mission
  • Escape the hamster wheel of doing the same old - but now ineffective - ministry programs 

Beyond Thingification will help you move from:

  • Confused about the church’s purpose...to clear about the church’s mission
  • Frustrated about your church’s ineffectiveness...to excited about what God is doing through your people
  • Distracted by meaningless measures of success...to focused on faithfulness as the true measure of success 

If you’re ready to get clear on how God is calling your church to engage in the mission of God in your unique context, Beyond Thingification will help you do just that.

Discipleship for our age

With a focus on shalom peace, this book highlights what all of our hearts are yearning for, especially in 2020. This book brings hope while also calling to action, reminding us that we all have a job to do and a purpose for our lives. Markus was able to relate to my own story and demonstrate the importance of my motivations outside of church. He gives great examples and directions of how to do discipleship and relationship, to remember that the church's purpose is people and not numbers.
