New Resource: Team Building
JSP identifies ‘Five Priorities’ that sum up the ministry of Jesus, and these are explored by churches that adopt JSP. Afterwards many churches find the need to focus more intentionally on one of these, so resources to enable this are steadily growing. In addition to ‘Puzzles of the Kingdom’ that unlocks the parabolic nature of Jesus’ teaching ministry, ‘Team Building’ has recently been developed to help church members discover and use their God given gifts, and to do so as part of the Body of Christ. Key issues such as ‘What kind of Leadership do we need to develop?’, and ‘How do we set each other free to respond to God’s call?’ are explored in a ten week series in Sunday worship and in small groups, with fine inclusion of children and young people. Resources for ‘Team Building’ will be published on the website shortly. St Wilfrid’s Church Calverley have recently piloted ‘Team Building’, and you can read a report of their experience here.
