Think about how much can go wrong on church committees or ministry teams:
- interpersonal conflicts as personalities clashes
- philosophical differences making it hard to move forward
- unity threatened as can’t come to agreement
- leave discouraged or torn down, ready to quit
Yet, think of all that can be accomplished through effective church committees, boards, or ministry teams, when people come together, putting their differences aside, working cohesively for the greater good.
- bonds of fellowship strengthened as we work through differences
- more accomplished as time is spent constructively
- go away encouraged and built up, energized to do more
We need God’s Power to have Effective Church Committees or Ministry Teams!
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power. (1 Cor. 4:20)
… by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith. (1 Thess. 1:11)
Look at the list of God’s power sources for us as His Church. We’ll eventually look at each of these sources as it relates to committees or ministry teams. For now, however, take some time to read about each by clicking on the links below. Reflect on how the power of God can help you function more unified to the glory of God and the accomplishment of His desires.
Which of these power sources might you need to tap into more for more effective church committees, boards, or ministry teams?
When you consider all the power God makes available to us through various means, we have no excuse for dysfunctional, ineffective church committees, boards, or ministry teams.
