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!
