Item description for Body Building: Creating a Ministry Team Through Spiritual Gifts (Leadership Insight Series) by Brian Kelley Bauknight...
Overview Bauknight shows pastors in medium-size churches (more than 150 in worship) and larger-size churches (more than 400 in worship) how to develop a lay volunteer staff to do the work of the various ministries within the congregation. The author discusses the use of laity teams to share responsibility for ministry, and the use of spiritual gift development to train volunteer staff.
God gave Moses the vision to build a tabernacle, but Moses did not build it by himself. Church leaders engage in a similar endeavor. They a) see what is inside other potential leaders, b) use leadership, discernment, and management skills to bring the potential out, and c) avoid standing in front of the future leaders once that skill becomes obvious.
Body Building is about creating a networked ministry team from within a congregation by identifying and matching spiritual gifts with the core purposes of the church. Brian Kelley Bauknight describes the processes for accomplishing this, processes which he has tested in his own congregation. In an era when our institutions and businesses are finding new ways to be in partnership with one another, Body Building shows how a church can accomplish its mission without adding to the financial overhead with full-time, salaried ministers who are hired "to do the ministry."
