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.

A critical issue for a transformational congregation -- a congregation that changes lives -- is the nature of the leadership teams. The very term bministry teamb is rapidly becoming the term of choice for church leadership entities. However, in practice that term frequently means nothing different than the old committee concept. "The Power of Ministry Teams" defines specifically how the ministry team is a unique leadership concept and how to make it happen.
