Reviews - What do customers think about Team Ministry?
Church ala New Testament Jan 14, 2004
I have thousands of books in my 30+ years of ministry, as a Pastor and a Missionary. This small book gives a glimpse of how the church should be. I not only read this book but have planted and established several churches with Rev. Iverson's theology of church leaders.
I also find it quite interesting that while in Africa these teachings flowed better and much more accepted then here in the USA.
Greatly helpful book for war-torn and weary church leaders Nov 3, 1998
I am a pastor and have a couple thousand books of my own. Of those I have a couple dozen I wish I could see get into the hands of every Born-again Christian Church Leader. This is one of those books. On this subject, the only book I've read that I like better is Watchman Nee's very hard to find book: The Normal Christian CHURCH Life. This book differs from that one in that Nee's small book deals just with the Theology of Team ministry whereas this one covers a lot of the practical application of those Biblical principles as well. These principles could be church-life changing for many a weary and struggling pastor. Can't afford a 2nd/3rd staff member? Can you afford not to hire one? Take a cut in pay if you have to, until the extra man draws in enough new membership to defray his cost. But DON'T ruin your health, your marriage and family life, and your ministry trying to be a little bit of all the ministries God never called you to, while NOT exercising the precious gifts God did give the Body of Christ through you. Get the book, you won't regret it.
