This book is not an attempt to offer hope, help, or even advice on what denominations need to do. However, it is a book about a significant turn-around of a middle-level administration of justice in one Protestant denomination and it does offer hope that other like administrations might be able to experience a better and more effective existence. Everyone's experience is unique and therefore cannot be replicated. However, the implementation of foundational all-encompassing principles, the development of new strategies, and the performance of specific tactics that are successful in one situation does offer hope to others that their modeling of the principles, adapting the strategies, and creating specific tactics to fit their context can bring change. "This book is a gutsy look at denominational life, leadership and vision, and offers new paradigms for the local church, middle judicatories and national denominational life. A must-read for anyone interested in bringing renewal to the local church and our denomination. Clearly, Borden has hit the bull's-eye with regard not only to our denomination's needs but also how renewal begins in the local church." - ABE News Foreword to Hit the Bullseye by Leith Anderson July 2003 "Some look at things that are, and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?" -- George Bernard Shaw There are approximately 400,000 churches in the United States and the vast majority of them belong to denominations. Some are healthy, vibrant, and growing. Most are tired, struggling, not growing, and don’t know what to do. Plenty of critics and cynics take surveys, analyze data, and write books about what is wrong with the churches of America. As if following the theology of Chicken Little they are convinced that the sky is falling and there is little we can do except seek cover. Proposals for renewal often are offered by theorists who tell practitioners what to do but have never actually done it themselves. What if? What if there was a way to help declining churches to grow? What if we could teach pastors how to lead their congregations to spiritual renewal? What if thousands of churches changed from maintenance to mission? What if a movement began with 200 churches that grew to 200,000 churches? What if millions of unchurched people came into lasting relationships with Jesus Christ and the church? What if the denominations of America with all of their people, property, and potential became the epicenter of this spiritual earthquake that became known as the Great Awakening of the 21st Century? Maybe all this sounds too good to be true. Well, it has already begun. Centered in the earthquake zone of northern California, the American Baptist Churches of the West have demonstrated that a plateaued and declining region of mainline congregations can become a model of healthy and growing congregations. They have overcome the usual excuses that “our churches are too small,” “we have too many older people and congregations,” and “property here is too expensive.” They followed a powerful formula of biblical strategies, courageous leadership, and much hard work. What is most amazing is that the turnaround took less than five years. Why not? Here is the dream. Denominational leaders, executive ministers, bishops, district superintendents, regional directors, seminary teachers, pastors, and lay leaders will discover what God has done in northern California and say, “Why not here?” “With a few creative adaptations we can do the same thing in our denomination and in our churches.” They will start small and multiply. They will risk their traditions, finances, staff, and jobs. They will respond to misunderstanding with teaching and take criticism with grace. Then there will be one successful church transformation—new vision, new faith, new people, and new excitement. One will become ten and ten will become one hundred. Church by church, region by region, denomination by denomination—a true reformation will bring a great new era to the people and churches of our generation. It can be done. It has been done. This is a dream of the way things can be. Be among those who say, “Why not? Let’s do it!”

At last, in this book, the great paradox of measurement is resolved. According to the authors' original -- and revealing -- research companies that manage by measurement outperform less disciplined competitors by an average three-year return on investment of 80 percent versus an average ROI of 45 percent. Yet few companies have put in place a disciplined approach for measuring the key nonfinancial, strategic performance areas that are so crucial to a firm's success. Bullseye! treats measurement as a key senior-management business issue. The authors explore the role of measurement in adding clarity and specificity to an organization's strategy, and in driving efforts to translate strategy into operational initiatives and business results. Organizational change and measurement experts William Schiemann and John Lingle have written the first book to provide a complete detailed blueprint for implementing a strategic measurement system. To resolve the measurement paradox, they have created as the centerpiece of Bullseye! a detailed case study that describes a four-phase process that will successfully transform any company into a measurement-managed organization. The four phases of this process are: defining a strategic business model, designing measures to support the model cascading the model and measures throughout the organization, and embedding the measures into the leadership processes of the organization. In eminently readable prose, the authors confront head-on the powerful forces that conspire to prevent a company from gaining the full value from its measurement system. In the process, Schiemann and Lingle have developed an integrative framework that covers all the major measurement areas: markets and customers, finance, people, operations, the environment, and suppliers. In fact, the authors go Beyond other published accounts of measurement systems by providing strategic tools to manage customer, community, environmental, and regulatory stakeholders along with suppliers, and adaptability -- the level at which a company learns and innovates. Focus and speed, they argue, are the essential competitive qualities. Following the guidelines recommended in this book, executives with responsibility for setting and implementing strategy should be able to make significant improvements in three months and major changes within a year. Bullseye! is must reading for all general managers at the corporate, division, and business-unit levels.

He then entered full-time ministry and has served in this vocation for over 43 years. Larry has trained leaders, established dozens of churches in America and abroad and today serves as a cultural commentator bringing insight, analysis and perspective from a Biblical worldview. His articles appear on sites reaching 26 million monthly. Larry is the author of nine books including a quarter-million bestseller, "Clap Your Hands", his autobiography. He has ministered internationally and appeared on national TV, plus spoken to numerous NFL and NBA teams. He is a public policy advisor with Liberty Counsel legal defense organization and a 40 year board member of Intercessors for America national prayer ministry. He has been married for 40 years with four grown children and five grandchildren, and resides in the Nashville metropolitan area. Larry has a conviction: as "David served the purpose of God in his generation and then fell asleep" (Book of Acts 13:36), if you would do the best with your life, find out what God is doing in your generation and fling yourself into it! For decades his ministry has helped individuals find and fulfill their destiny in life. With the BULLSEYE initiative, Larry is issuing a challenge to people of all ages to become informed influencers in today's changing culture. Investing 15 minutes for 30 days, individuals can hit the mark by understanding and communicating confidently on the controversial issues of our day. This innovative approach consists of three steps: review a video for three minutes; read an article for 10 minutes; then, reflect and pray for two minutes. In a compelling and enjoyable manner, Larry addresses these hot button issues: Social justice, same-sex marriage, racial inequality, Islam, legalizing marijuana, transgenderism, atheism, living together, the apocalypse, divorce, capital punishment, abortion, affairs, immigration, AIDS and STDs, suicide, masturbation, gay Christians, sexting, death with dignity and more. His passion is for everyone to know the truth and then confidently communicate it with charity and clarity. In a national survey, 67% of conservative Christians said they want their church to provide them with more information - more biblical teachings - about the issues that are so important in an election. Additionally, Barna Research revealed that 90% of Christian leaders believe the Bible addresses most of today's controversial issues, yet only 10% said they were willing to address them! Here is a resource to supply adults and youth and pastors and everyone with what they need to be equipped and engaged in making a difference today. Larry Tomczak has given us a gift as well as a secret weapon to become confident communicators and change agents in today's confusing world. He's calling everyone concerned about our future to take the the 30 day Bullseye challenge to change our lives and our nation.

Pulled away from his family and pressed into service, Detective Michael Bennett must trace the source of a threat that could rip the country apart--and ignite a war the likes of which the world has never seen. With allegiances constantly in doubt and no one above suspicion, only Bennett can save the president--and the country--before the assassins' deadly kill shot hits its mark.
