Item description for Team Leadership In Christian Ministry: Using Multiple Gifts to Build a Unified Vision by Kenneth O. Gangel...
Overview In place of dogmatic control, personality worship, and power plays, Kenneth Gangel lays the biblical base for servant leadership. "For busy people who can't read everything on the expanding numbers of books on leadership--which is all of us--I recommend this book highly. It is an important contribution to a vitally important topic." Dr. David L. Rambo President, Alliance Theological Seminary "It is no secret that the crying need both of our culture and our churches is leadership. This book provides a fresh perspective of leadership that is both solidly biblical and thoroughly practical. I strongly recommend it to any leader or aspiring leader who wishes to lead in a style that is biblical, culturally relevant, and effective. Many people talk about biblical leadership. Team leadership will show you how." Dr. Gene A. Getz Senior Pastor, Fellowship Bible Church North "Calls for leadership are everywhere, but who knows what it is or how to lead? Kenneth Gangel bridges scholarship and practice, scripture and secular literature, yesterday and tomorrow--teaching Team Leadership." Leith Anderson Pastor, Wooddale Church "Once every few years, or perhaps once in a decade, I read a book that has a profound impact on my life and ministry. Without a doubt, Team Leadership is that kind of book. I know of no other book on leadership which contains so much helpful and insightful information o the vital subject of authentic Christian leadership." From the forward by Paul A. Cedar Chairman/CEO, Mission America Kenneth O. Gangel (B.A., Taylor University; M.A., Fuller Summer Seminary; M.Div., Grace Theological Seminary; S.T.M., Concordia Seminary; Ph.D., University of Missouri) is vice president of academic affairs, academic dean, and distinguished professor of Christian Education at Dallas Theological Seminary.

Publishers Description Team leadership is the exercise of one's spiritual gifts under the call of God to serve a certain group of people in achieving the goals God has given them toward the end of glorifying Christ. How is your church or organization governed? Does it have an authoritarian, top-down administration? Is the ministry vision developed by a few top officials, with little input from staff or volunteers? Today the definition of an effective leader has changed. No longer does the model leader manage like the Lone Ranger--either do it his way or no way. Today the model leader shares responsibility with fellow team leaders and seeks to serve them. In this complete revision of his earlier work, "Building Leaders for Church Education, " Dr. Gangel carefully lays a biblical foundation for the team leadership model. This leadership is not dogmatic control or personality worship. It has no room for political power plays. Instead, it is Paul gently nurturing young Christians in his epistles. It is Barnabas willingly thrusting others into situations where they develop their own gifts. It is Christ, choosing not one, but twelve men to carry on His ministry. It is servant leadership. With examples, illustrations, and suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter, Dr. Gangel prods and encourages the reader to move beyond the safety net of autocratic leadership into the rewarding, effective practice of leading with and through others.
