Teams and Teamwork
It is evident that no one individual has all that is necessary to bring the best leadership to any Kingdom enterprise. Because no one leader can do everything well we must lead with a team. My experience is that good teams are hard to come by, but when you experience one you will never forget it. Remember, when talking about leadership and teams we mean a leader and his / her team, not team leadership.
Following are some additional thoughts related to teams and teamwork:
New Testament Leadership Team Models
- Elder model
- Apostolic model – Jesus and his team — a training team
- Apostolic model – Paul and his team — a task/mission oriented team
Team: a group of people who need each other in order to accomplish the task
Leadership Team Models in the Great Commission
Go to the nations…. and …teach them everything
Paul Philemon / Archippus

Team Synergy: comes from group think concerning individual team member’s portfolio items and group work on specific tasks for a limited time
Team Leaders Must: 1. Listen 2. Learn 3. Love 4. Lead
May God give you the special privilege of leading a team of other leaders!
Great article on teams. I find that great teams are hard to build and/or find, but once you have one, they are amazing… ideas flow, people encourage one another and things get done. Thanks for the examples and models… very insightful and helpful.
Good Morning Dr. Yeakley,
My name is Chris Amulo. I serve with the Navigators Kenya as the Collegiate Director. I have enjoyed reading your leadership blog. Three years ago, I visited Colorado Springs during GSP and heard you speak. The Students Ministry Staff Team and I here in Nairobi are finalizing studying your book Growing Kingdom Character. Thank you for your ‘long distance mentoring’.
Recently I was asked by the Navigators Kenya to lead out as the person in charge of Leadership and Leader Development. I am 43 years old. Any thoughts you can share with me? Chris & Anne Amulo
2Co 2:14 But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him.
Thanks for the feedback…sounds encouraging and exciting.
I’ll take this off line and respond via email.

Reblogged this on Sunday School on Steroids-The Seminary Experience.
Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something. I think that you could do with some p.c. to pressure the message house a bit, but instead of that, that is magnificent blog. A great read. I will definitely be back. acid reflux home remedies
