Team Series: Is That All We Need? , by Gena McCown
It is time to cap off this series, but I don’t want you to think that this handful of suggestions is the perfect combination for leadership teams, the must haves, the only needed support. The truth is a great leadership team is going to look and function differently from church to church. Your teams is going to be built around the vision you have for the ministry, to support the vision of the church.
You may wish to have a Prayer Team Leader, who is a woman with the spiritual gifts of intercession. She will help lead and teach others how to pray, coordinate prayer events, etc.
If you have a lot of stay at home moms in your church, maybe the Women’s Ministry would sponsor starting up a MOPS Group and you will need someone to lead that group.
The church may request that you coordinate a meal ministry, and that may require having someone with the gift of hospitality step up to lead it.
Each of us, as leaders, will need to assess the individual needs of church and community and develop a team of women who can meet/coordinate to meet those needs. We would LOVE to hear about unique leadership positions you have within your Women’s Ministry team.
- What is the position?
- What characteristics or spiritual gifts are used in this position?
- How do they serve?
- What are the responsibilities and expectations of that person/role?
