Even the Lone Ranger had Tonto, sometimes his cousin, Dan Reed, and of course his amazing horse and friend, Silver. We should not try this calling called pastoring alone.
Whether we’re talking lead volunteers or paid full-time and part-time staff, one of the goals must be joyful teamwork. Unified collaboration. Fun together. Joy in ministry! And none of that is automatic.
So this month we talk about how a leadership team or ministry team stays together on purpose and with love. The work of ministry may be hard at times but the pulling together should be joyful and encouraging. The leader must not give up on seeing that joy and encouragement are pretty constant.
Often the answers can look good on paper but be harder to make a reality. Ask Moses, or any leader in the Bible. Ask any mother or father.
But it is worth it.

Grateful for good teams and meaningful times together,
Knute, for Jeff and Jim
