A Vision Resource for German-speaking Church Leaders

ND Strupler, Leadership Development Director with the ICF Movement in Zurich, Switzerland, just delivered an early Christmas present to Auxano.

The Church Unique Visual Summary – translated into German.

Will Mancini, founder of Auxano and author of Church Unique, made these comments when learning of the translation:

I love the ICF Movement and the work ND does to equip church planters. I have been grateful for our relationship over the years and time I spent with ICF planters in Zurich last year.  I hope this translation will spark some intentional clarity work for many more German-speaking pastors. 

Strupler has a clear vision to change culture, and he finds that the most effective way to change culture is through healthy communities that reflect the love of God in everyday life.

I want to get things moving. That’s why I am willing to roll up my sleeves and get to work. I am not satisfied with mediocrity, that’s why I think strategically about how I can help people maximize their leadership skills.
I inspire action with a positive attitude and the passion for communication.

Strupler was born in Zurich, Switzerland and lives there now with his wife and two children. After finishing high school he successfully graduated from a 4-year apprenticeship as a professional printer. In 1997 he started to work for ICF Zurich, a church at the heartbeat of time. As a pioneer he started many ministries and projects and lead the youth ministry for 10 years.

Since 2007 Strupler has worked for the ICF Movement, a church planting movement for Europe. Main areas of service are Leader-Development, Consulting, Networking and Creative- Innovation.

comment_post_ID); ?> Thank you Ed for sharing your insights into the Church Growth Movement. I have my reservations with Church Growth models because it has done more damage than good in the Body of Christ. Over the years, western churches are more focused on results, formulas and processes with little or no emphasis on membership and church discipline. Pastors and vocational leaders are burnt out because they're overworked. I do believe that the Church Growth model is a catalyst to two destructive groups: The New Apostolic Reformation and the Emerging Church. Both groups overlap and have a very loose definition. They're both focus on contemporary worship, expansion of church brand (franchising), and mobilizing volunteering members as 'leaders' to grow their ministry. Little focus on biblical study, apologetics and genuine missional work with no agenda besides preaching of the gospel.

I am one of the leaders in Emmanuel united church of Ethiopia (A denomination with more-than 780 local churches through out the country). I am preparing a presentation on succession planning for local church leaders. It will help me for preparation If you send me more resources and recommend me books to read on the topic. I hope we may collaborate in advancing leadership capacity of our church. God Bless You and Your Ministry.
