Train as a team!
Understanding teamwork and training as a team is obviously significant to the overall success of the group. However, there are some “do’s and don’ts” to fully comprehend training as a team.
Training and working as a team does not place everyone in an equal position. There are specific roles each member must fulfill in order for the unit to function properly. Problems will arise when anyone in a leadership position begins to navigate on their own and no longer follows the proper organizational flow of communication and authority.
Training and working as a team does place everyone on the same page. When a unit works as a team the goals are communicated and understood. Every individual understands their specific tasks to reach the goals. Also, each person is diligent to fulfill their responsibilities without casting blame on someone else for not carrying their weight.
Training as a team has great advantages for the development of any organization. This is especially true within the area of spiritual leadership. When we work together, each fulfilling our necessary roles, the group wins.

One of the common concerns today, at almost every level, involves the future of leadership. Who will lead? What direction will leadership take us? How are we training leaders for tomorrow’s need?
An idea refers to a thought or suggestion for a possible course of action, an aim or purpose. Over the next few weeks we plan to focus on suggestions, ideas designed to prepare stronger leaders for the future.
Resources abound when considering plans for growing leaders. The key is partnering the right resources with the right people at the right time.
A few of the ideas we want to explore over the weeks ahead include: building character, developing vision, strengthening relationships, goal setting and achievement, and problem resolution / conflict management.
These represent only a few needed areas when training leaders for tomorrow, but they provide a valuable foundation to secure the future of leadership.
While we cannot explore the depths of each area over the course of a few weeks; hopefully, the material will lay down a few principles that will guide the path for stronger leadership training as we prepare for the future.
When we consider the future, what does leadership look like for the church?
Do we see larger numbers of leaders guiding and shepherding the church according to the biblical model?
Do we see congregations influencing more people for the cause of Christ because of the example set by leadership in the church?
If this is the vision we have for the future of leadership, then we need to consider how we will accomplish this vision.
We have already experienced what waiting to see if people develop on their own accomplishes, and the outcome has not be favorable.
We must be proactive in developing the future of leadership through training. The Lord’s church needs solid leaders, and we are not only responsible, but we will be held accountable for the approach we are taking to the development of leadership for the future.
Nothing will happen by accident. Leaders do not just wake up one day and say, “I’ll lead.” They must be groomed carefully, strategically, and biblically in order to direct the future of the church.
The time is now. Let us pursue the task with diligence.
