The Team that Jesus Built

Jesus built strong teams. You can too!
In The Team That Jesus Built: How to Develop, Equip, and commission a Women's Ministry Team find Jesus' 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 locations, denomination, or size--to cultivate leadership skills and create teams for the glory of God. The author provides ministry leaders with tools, direction, guidance, and encouragement to build teams that equip leaders to build teams.
Whether you are starting a new ministry, remodeling or assuming a ministry from a previous leader, or just desiring to take your ministry team to a new level of commitment this book will help you wherever you are in your ministry leader journey.

Note from author:
The Team That Jesus Built is based on my personal experience building the Woman to Woman Mentoring Ministry at Saddleback Church, under the leadership of pastor Rick Warren. I share with the reader the disastrous consequences of trying to build a team myself, and the miraculous transformation of the team when I went to my knees asking Jesus to show me how He built teams. All the principles I discuss in the book are applicable to any ministry, not solely women's ministry. Every team leader's goal and legacy should be to build a team that will outshine and outlive them.
Endorsement from Laurie Beth Jones, author of Jesus CEO and The Four Elements of Success: "In The Team That Jesus Built, Janet Thompson shares from personal experience with team building Jesus-style. She is thorough in every area and phase of team development, providing useful tools for building, mentoring, coaching and assessing your team. No matter where you are in your team-building process, The Team That Jesus Built provides a proven model that will help you and your team efficiently and effectively serve the ministry."
