What can we learn from the leadership of Paul?
Most Christians know something of the Apostle Paul's life and ministry, but what about the incredible team of leaders he assembled and mobilized? Who were they, and how did Paul lead this team to accomplish God's purposes? Even more, what can we learn from their successes and failures, and how can we apply their strategies today?
These are the questions that inspired Ryan Lokkesmoe, PhD, to write Paul and His Team. Like a church-ministry version of Team of Rivals, it reveals important leadership principles and practices by showing how this early team of church leaders:
Adapted to cultural, doctrinal, and interpersonal challenges Found common ground with their audiences Led baby believers toward maturity Stayed united despite differing opinions Equipped others for the work of the ministry Conducted their lives with self-discipline Built and maintained strategic partnerships Navigated sensitive cross-cultural situations Persisted through difficulty, frustration, and fractured relationships Persevered when ministry was discouraging Developed leaders to replace them
Whether you are in a position of leadership or are simply an engaged disciple, you have a sphere of influence that God can use to build his church. While Paul and His Team is certainly a storehouse of relevant insights into the life and ministry of Paul, it also highlights both prominent and obscure members of Paul's team to offer a textured portrait of the early church's influence in spreading the gospel.
Let's learn from the men and women God used to build the church so your leadership today can continue the work they began.
Includes group discussion questions at the end of each chapter, making this book ideal for a church-staff or small group study.
