Proverbs 6:6-8
Leadership Perspective: A vision of team work.
The first task of every team would be to develop a unified vision. This vision would be tailored to the particular congregation and ministry area. The vision would be specific and manageable, with attainable goals and a time table. Then the team would assess the particular gifts present on the team, and figure out the contributions that each individual could make. This would also be the time to figure out whether the team had the necessary gifts to accomplish the vision. After that would come implementation and communication between team members to monitor progress.
