Overview

Jesus built strong teams. You can too.

Get His methods, answers, and more for team-building challenges most leaders encounter:
•How do you motivate people to serve selflessly?
•How do you equip people to be new leaders?
•How do you “let go” as a leader?

Through personal observations, step-by-step instructions, and simple how-to applications of Jesus’ leadership principles, The Team That Jesus Built equips laywomen—regardless of church location, denomination, size—to cultivate leadership skills and create teams for the glory of God.

Based on the author’s experience building the women’s ministry at Saddleback Church, California, under the leadership of pastor Rick Warren (The Purpose Driven Life), Thompson provides ministry leaders with tools, direction, guidance, and encouragement to build teams that equip leaders to build teams.

I meant to just thumb through this book when I first saw it, but the introduction grabbed me and I couldn't put it down. Even though I've been in ministry for more than 20 years, this book inspired me to keep pressing on, but more importantly, reminded me of the reason I do what I do...to serve the Lord. If you haven't yet built a team, this book won't make you feel discouraged for not having done so, but inspired to do it in the way that Jesus did! Thanks, Janet, for encouraging my heart and reminding me, through this book, of the tremendous privilege of leading people.

In "The Team that Jesus Built," Janet shares her experience and wisdom in an easy-to-read and practical format. Whether you are "building" from scratch, "remodeling," or simply "refurbishing" your women's ministry you will find helpful and insightful direction. This book is packed with "how-to's" that really do help, usable charts, forms, and case studies. Here are just a few of the areas Janet covers: Mission statements and goal setting; Job descriptions; Team recruiting and training; Conflict resolution; Accountability and spiritual growth; and Ministry area evaluation and planning. Every women's ministry leader and her team will benefit from The Team that Jesus Built.
