More About the Author

Communicator, author, and pastor, ANDY STANLEY founded Atlanta-based North Point Ministries in 1995. Today, NPM is comprised of six churches in the Atlanta area and a network of 30 churches around the globe, collectively serving over 60,000 people weekly. A survey of U.S. pastors in Outreach Magazine identified Andy Stanley as one of the top 10 most influential living pastors in America.

The author of 20-plus books, including The New Rules of Love, Sex, and Dating, Ask It, How to Be Rich, Deep & Wide, Enemies of the Heart, When Work & Family Collide, Visioneering, and Next Generation Leader, Andy Stanley holds two degrees, an undergraduate in journalism from Georgia State University and a Masters degree from Dallas Theological Seminary, the impact of which is all too evident in his written work.

In the digital world, his success reaches well beyond local Atlanta-area walls. Two million of Stanley's messages, leadership videos, and podcasts are accessed from North Point's website monthly.

In 2012, Your Move with Andy Stanley premiered on NBC after Saturday Night Live, giving him an even wider audience with which to share his culturally relevant, practical insight for life and leadership. In less than two years, over 36 million episodes have been viewed, underscoring Stanley's impact not only as a communicator but also as a cultural change agent.

But nothing is so personal as his passion for engaging with live audiences, which Stanley has pursued for over a decade, speaking at leadership events around the world. In high demand, he speaks at various events before a yearly audience of both church and organizational leaders of nearly 200,000, including conferences such as Catalyst, Leadercast, Exchange, and the WCA Global Leadership Summit.

"I cannot fill their cups," he often says of the opportunity to impact leaders in business and in ministry, "but I have a responsibility to empty mine."

Andy Stanley and his wife, Sandra, have three grown children and live near Atlanta.

Format: Hardcover
I always count on Andy Stanley to have something to say that will be practical and helpful. This book did not disappoint in this regard. He reminds us in the church -- and really anyone who has a vision for a family, organization, or company -- that the work is not done once the vision is clear. The vision takes reinforcement and reminders. There are signs for which to watch that suggest the vision is slipping and needs attention. The message of the book is worthwhile.

However, the book's length would be more appropriate for an article in a periodical than a book for separate publication. Thus, for this particular topic, I'd recommend looking for articles online or in business or church leadership periodicals first.

A few years back, we established a Biblical purpose for our youth ministry. It has been our guide to stay focused and on track to do the work of God. This year, we had a youth leadership retreat to plan and evaluate. I read this book before the retreat and it helped me communicate better our purpose and gave many ideas to continue the process. As Andy says, "Vision does not stick without constant care and attention." I would highly recommend this book! It gave me renewed passion about our purpose.

At the close of each year through the first few weeks of the following year, I prayerfully seek God's will and desire for our church. I find myself reading through the Scriptures with an intentionality of understanding what God has for the church in general as well as our church specifically in where we are located.

God brings along books to me as well that are priceless. The latest book is Making Vision Stick by Andy Stanley. Having only read one other book by Stanley (Visioneering) -- and that was years ago -- I approached this book without much bias or even expectation.

Yet I would highly recommend this short book. He recommends three ways to help vision stick:

* Cast vision strategically: defining your vision
* Celebrate vision systematically: regularly rejoicing in the successes
* Live your vision continuously: putting your vision into practice in your own life.

He goes on to note how the vision statement for the church must be simple and memorable. He notes how it is better to have vision statement simple and incomplete rather than complete but too long to remember. It is up to the leader to help those following him to see the vision the leader has embraced.

I read Andy's Visioneering several years ago to help me get my hands around vision. This book is much more practical as it takes the principles in Visioneering and condenses them down to simple, doable steps.
Andy's books on vision have encouraged me to write a book on personal vision as well.

This book is a very quick read. It is a good book and Stanley gives a quick but brief look into casting vision. It is worth reading but if you are looking for a more in depth look at how to cast vision he has better books for it.

I found this book to be sort of a rehash of Visioneering. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't word for word, but the principles were there in condensed form. It seems like all the Leadership books are becoming redundant. This one was blaise' at best for me. Sorry. I usually like what Andy Stanley writes.

I saw reviews of this book on various lead ministers blogs that I read and decided to give it a shot. After you've prayed and prayed and prayed and God has worked in you to reveal the vision of your church or ministry then is the time to pick up this book and quickly read through the how to's of vision casting and making it stick. With great illustrations and to the point ways to help your people understand the vision this is the best book I've read on vision and recommend it to any minister in any position in the church or para-church organization because we all cast vision and we can all use the help to do it better.
