When you are building teams, you are expanding your influence by extending it to others. This is especially true when there is a diversification of talents and abilities. One of the benefits of team building is that it unlocks the power of collaborative dynamism. This energizes more people to do greater ministry in a shorter period of time. This video will unpack the importance of ministry team dynamics.

In order for a team to persist as a well-functioning group, the team has to be infused with purpose. By nature, teams provide a framework which helps to intensify the capacity for individuals to engage in serving, decision making, and planning. Teams are a vital part in the influence you have in your ministry.

Most teams in church, such as hospitality and technical production teams may share skillsets, have a more permanent service-related purpose, and a demonstrate a unified sense of direction and identity. Also, high-functioning teams understand the importance of a balance of talents and skills. As a result, the dynamics of a team are an important aspect of ministry to understand.

High-functioning teams may have an all-star team in terms of talent. However, if they are mismatched in terms of personality or temperament, the team may derail and not perform to expected potential. Serving alongside others inherently strengthens ministry teams. The Bible supports serving with a big dose of generosity: “A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.” — Proverbs 11:25.
