How to Build “Kingdom-Minded” Organizations by Mark A. Griffin
Don’t let the small size of this book scare you away! It is chock full of simple, easy-to-do and clearly laid out things-to-do for you to implement in your Christian business or organization.
The author clearly defines what he means by “kingdom-minded” right in the beginning. I would have liked to have seen the first bullet point fleshed out a little bit more though—puts Christ first. Not everyone really knows how to do that so I consider this to be a key piece of information missing.
I loved sections on making your own mission, vision and core values. The author clearly lays out why you need them and how to make them in an easy-to-implement way. I would have liked to have seen mores samples for the mission and vision but there are plenty of sample core values to choose from.
I think where this book really shines though, is in explaining how to implement and integrate your mission, vision and core values into your existing business structure. There are plenty of resources out there on how to make your mission, vision and core values, but very few tell you what to do with them afterward to make them truly a part of your organization. This book would be worth purchasing just for this part alone.
There are plenty of other good tips contained in, How to Build ‘Kingdom-Minded’ Organizations, especially on how to improve leadership skills. If you are in leadership of a Christian organization or business you will definitely benefit from reading this book.
