Collaboration: Uniting Our Gifts in Ministry available in Paperback
Despite the focus on collaborative ministry in several church documents and pastoralletters in recent years, two frequently asked questions still persist: "What is it?" and "How do we make it work?"
In Collaboration: Uniting Our Gifts in Ministry, authors Loughlan Sofield , ST and Carroll Juliano, SHCJ, provide answers to these questions based on their work of over twenty years with thousands of Christians who are actively working to give birth to a ministry that calls on all Christians to share their baptismal gifts.
Collaboration offers a comprehensive model and a wealth of practical strategies to help ministers navigate their way through the sometimes messy, sometimes painful issues they confront. Chronicling the many developments in the church's life and practice since the issue of collaborative ministry first came into focus, they identify some of the myths and obstacles that hinder effective collaborative ministry and offer concrete examples of why and how collaboration is working. Their careful use of a full range of contemporary ecclesial documents helps readers concretize a sometimes nebulous understanding of collaborative ministry.

What People are Saying About This
There is no one in church leadership today who has given more commitment, passion, and scholorship to a vision of collaborative ministry than Br. Loughlan Sofield and Sr. Carroll Juliano. It is my prayer and hope that I will continue to be formed and shaped by the prophetic vision of this book and that the church will continue to be renewed through the giftedness of each and every person called by baptism to buils the reign of god. (Howard J. Hubbard, Bishop of Albany)
