Together as a Team proposes an approach to seeing teams move beyond authoritative, top-down leadership structures into a values-based and shared leadership model. It introduces a framework for clarifying your church’s mission, vision, and values in a collaborative way. Once you articulate those, the work of defining ministry goals, refining strategy, and aligning resources quickly emerges. This approach to values-based leadership will fortify engagement, ownership, and empowerment, which can catalyze your team toward greater kingdom impact.
Written for pastors, ministry leaders, team leaders, and elders alike, this book will help anyone who is called to steward a local church body. Churches can use this resource not just to develop their own leadership knowledge but also to build a long-term and sustainable approach to collaborative, values-based leadership. You will walk away with a fresh perspective on effective ministry leadership.
