Whether you are the solo pastor of a small church or one of the pastors in multi-staff situation, we are all part of a team. Out team might be other pastors, deacons/elders or a group of volunteers.
A healthy team environment doesn’t come about by accident. It requires work. While it is not all up to us, we can only control what we will do. We must be intentional in building healthy teams.
Invest in the relationships with the people you are working with. Figure out what motivates them and develop that relationship. Make sure to work on communication. If something bothers us, we need to talk to the person directly instead of complaining to others. Direct, clear and respectful communication can do wonders.
Who is on our team and what one thing can we do to build that team?
