Transform Your Church with Ministry TeamsTransform Your Church with Ministry Teams

The concept of "ministry teams" is rapidly taking hold in churches, but what are they and how do they work? This book outlines what effective ministry teams look like, describes what they have to offer local congregations, and gives concrete advice for making them happen. According to Stanley Ott, the power of ministry teams lies in their unique capacity to generate genuine Christian fellowship, grow disciples, develop leaders, and mobilize people for ministry. Where traditional church leadership organizations concentrate almost exclusively on task, policy, and program, ministry teams are designed to enhance faith development and, therefore, ministry effectiveness. Transform Your Church with Ministry Teams offers clear guidance for building the leadership of a mission or church into a true ministry team. The book enables readers to form ministry teams and, through them, to transform the life of their church or Christian organization.

All church leaders long to prepare God's people for works of service and to see the body of Christ built up until all reach unity and maturity. But how does this happen in the church? Leadership Training Network is an organization committed to influencing and resourcing innovative church leaders who equip people for biblical gift-based team ministry. In scanning the landscape it has spotted a growing movement of leaders committed to equipping people that crosses all barriers of denomination, geography, and style. The focus among healthy churches is shifting from church growth to church health, from gathering people to dispersing people into the marketplace and community, placing people into ministries that match their life-long callings. The Equipping Church describes sixteen "equipping heroes" - churches that are already implementing these biblical principles. Mallory's story of becoming the Director of Equipping Ministries in a California church serves as a framework to explain what an equipping church is, how it functions, why this is a biblical model, and what is involved in making this transition. It addresses the felt need of pastors who know they should equip lay people, but want examples of churches who are already successfully doing it.

How can you become a more successful manager, a stronger team leader, and a motivator who gets the best results from a group? Ken Blanchard and Marc Muchnick's The Leadership Pill provides the answer. In the bestselling tradition of Whale Done! and The One Minute Manager, their entertaining and inspiring new book is a parable about the competition between two leaders with totally different management styles -- a story that reveals the ingredients of truly effective leadership.

Consider this tantalizing possibility: What if there were a pill that could actually stimulate the natural powers of the mind and body to provide leadership? In the story, an amazing new pill heightens one leader's powers, but contains the wrong ingredients, stimulating him in an obsessive and shortsighted direction with disastrous results. In contrast, the Effective Leader, working without a pill, proclaims that "only through sustainability can our teams remain motivated and successful." An inspiring and supportive leader, he supplies the right ingredients, earning his team's respect and trust with a blend of integrity, partnership, and affirmation. The hard-won result is a highly motivated team producing consistent top performance and genuine success. Ultimately it is recognized that "leadership for a lifetime" is much easier to digest than a pill for leaders looking for a quick fix.

Destined to be a transforming experience for countless readers, The Leadership Pill shows business managers at any level how to apply the right techniques for getting both results and the commitment of their people, even when the pressure to perform is high.
