RUNFREE LOGO

Stop The Chase.

And run free into what Jesus started.

For the last 23 years, we’ve helped church leaders clarify what matters most– their unique culture and vision to continue what Jesus started.

Run Free is founded by Will Mancini, our generation’s original clarity thought leader. Over 40,000 church teams use his processes and tools. As a result of his generosity and certification models, his clarity tools and vision methodology are embedded in almost every denomination, seminary, church planter training, and church consulting shop across North America.

Run Free is a culminating expression of multiple organizations and initiatives that Will has launched over the last 20 years, bringing a dynamically integrated coaching and consulting approach to the local church with his current team.

Will founded and led Auxano for 16 years, which he sold to LifeWay. Auxano still operates using the Vision Framing process that Will designed between 2001 and 2008. Two years prior to Covid, Will began reinventing his clarity method to help churches get better disciple-making results. The book Future Church: Seven Laws of Real Church Growth, is the fruit of this season and was published at the end of 2020. Immediately after COVID-19, Will departed LifeWay and started a two-year project, the Future Church Company, during which the Future Church Vision Framing process was developed. It is now called “The Pivvot Process” and is exclusively delivered through Run Free as one of our signature services.

In 2019, frustrated by the misuse of Vision Framing in the network and denominational context, Will started Denominee to help network leaders recreate the value of belonging to a family of churches or denomination. Through Denominee, Will created a unique Vision Framing approach for any leader providing stewardship over a local, regional, or national group of churches. The Denominee process is the second signature service exclusively delivered by Run Free.
