Recently, there has been a shift to focus on team leadership. It’s a healthy way to lead that’s modeled by Jesus himself, but it’s not always intuitive. True leaders often get into a rut, doing everything by themselves, but this costs the leader, the team, and the ministry. By working together, we can be more innovative, creative, productive, and skillful. We can each do what we do best and let others do the same. We can pool our knowledge, wisdom, and resources to best serve the people in our ministries. That’s quite a win, isn’t it?
Once you’ve decided to pursue team ministry, this resource will help you discover practical tips for developing your team—both as individuals and as one cohesive unit. From small shifts in your meetings to fun activities to build trust, you’ll find a multitude of ideas for strengthening your ministry team.
