What Others Are Saying about FOCUS


I highly recommend this manual to any church that desires to move from being “request driven” to “strategy driven” in their missions approach. It is biblical and practical—stirring the heart and stimulating the mind. FOCUS is a must-have for lay and staff missions leaders and participants who want to effectively put their passion for the Great Commission to work.

Matthew Ellison, Ministry Officer and Coach


Local churches are God’s primary agents in God’s great task of establishing his Kingdom among all nations. This leaves church leaders with two critical questions. What specifically is God calling us to do? And, how can we identify, recruit, and engage the spiritual, human, and material resources necessary to fulfill His calling? The Your FOCUS on the World planning tool kit is an amazing resource for church or missions leaders seeking to mobilize individual churches for Kingdom building.

There is no one size fits all church mobilization process but if you want a flexible and yet systematic approach I recommend the Your FOCUS on the World. Ellen Livingood has done a remarkable job of distilling years of practical experience helping churches of all different sizes go to the next level of global engagement.

As an Outreach Pastor this was the tool I was looking for to guide me through the process of developing a strategic focus. Whether you are just getting started in global missions or a seasoned veteran, Your FOCUS on the World is a valuable resource.

If you are looking for a comprehensive guide to lead your church into full engagement in missions, then look no further. Your Focus On The World contains all the information needed, laid out in logical progression, to stir up interest in your congregation to engage in a vibrant mission program. Full of real-life examples from both North America and overseas, this guide is relevant, up-to-date, and comprehensive. I suspect this will quickly become a standard for church missional engagement.
