About the Book

Have you ever wondered what Jesus wants your church to do? It can be disorienting to sort through the many ministry models available today, as well as the ever-present cultural expectation to grow. Claiming the Corner looks to Jesus’ own teaching for how to make impact for the Kingdom of God.

Each chapter focuses on one of the six Kingdom parables of Jesus in Matthew 13, interpreting them as instructions on serving and working Jesus’ way. Discussion questions are included, as well as examples of diverse congregations that are fulfilling each parable in unique and creative ways. Join the Kingdom Impact Jesus’ Way community at and on Facebook.

If your call is to grow the Kingdom of God, serve sacrificially, and push the boundaries for discipleship in Jesus Christ, you need to read this book – cover to cover – with your entire leadership team. Pastor Mark dares to re-examine the Kingdom parables of Jesus as recorded in Matthew 13 through the missional lens of leaving your church walls. You will be challenged. You will be stretched. And you will be blessed as the Holy Spirit moves through your ministry to the dark corners in your community. Fasten your seatbelt for real Kingdom Impact!

—Pastor Brian Goke, Faith Lutheran Church,
