TEAMS is a ministry training program for:
TEAMS stands for the following proficiency areas:
T - Teaching/Preaching
Resources for your small group, church, ministry gathering, etc. that will help effectively share God's word in your context.
E - Evangelism/Engagement
Resources for personal, public and small group sharing of God's Word and the gospel. The prerequisite to all evangelism is engagement, and resources/links are provided to help you engage the community that your ministry is located in.
A - Administration
Organization and resources based upon the principle, "Work smarter, not harder" are provided in this section. Also included are resources to build cohesion with your ministry team.
M - Member Care
While doing ministry, some groups get so busy "doing" that they have little time for "being". Contained in this section are resources to help maintain the relationships of your ministry team, while reaching out to others.
S - Spirituality
This is THE foundation of leadership. Without personal spirituality, team members may struggle to work together in ministry. For the closer each team member comes to Jesus, the closer they come to each other.
Jesus Himself spent time in prayer before calling His disciples, and we maintain our spirituality because we ARE His disciples. Without spiritual connection, there is only an outward show of ministry.
TEAMS: Ministry together - period!
