Overview
There are two groups of people in your church. Those who do most of the work (they run the programs, organize the activities, staff the committees), and those who thrive on the relational activities (small groups, social get-togethers, etc.). So if your church is looking for a fresh, more effective way to accomphlish its goals, let Roberta Hestenes show you how in "Turning Committees into Communities." It's the best way to demonstrate the ministry of the church while also carrying out the ministry of the church.

Publishers Description
Meetings don't have to be boringEXPERIENCE THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.There are two groups of people in your church. Those who do most of the work (they run the programs, organize the activities, staff the committees), and those who thrive on relational activities (small groups, social get-togethers, etc.)The workers keep things running smoothly, but often at their own expense. Feeling used, burned out, and unappreciated, they wonder why more people aren't "committed" to the church.Relational members, on the other hand, provide much of the warm, community atmosphere that can make people feel at home in a church, but they typically shy away from formal, task-oriented responsibilities (often to the chagrin of the first group )However, when committees are redesigned to function as communities, wonderful changes begin to take place. Meetings become more productive, group members start looking forward to serving, and the overall spirit of the church begins to improve.So if your church is looking for a fresh, more effective way to accomplish its goals, let Roberta Hestenes show you how in Turning Committees into Communities. It's the best way to demonstrate the ministry of the church, while also carrying out the ministry of the church.

Reviews - What do customers think about Turning Committees into Communities: A Surprisingly Effective Means for Preventing Worker Burnout, While Boosting Morale at the Same Time?

A Relational Challenge for Effective Ministry  Sep 18, 2000
According to the Master, the kingdom would be founded on relationships, not dogma, buildings, positions or titles and the church is not there yet. How can ministry become more effective in the local church and like its founder had in mind when Jesus said the world would know that we are his disciples by the way we love one another?

An excellent paperback which details the process was written by Roberta Hestenes in 1991 entitled, Turning Committees into Communities. Hestenes has simplified and clarified the relational aspects of the Kingdom in accomplishing mission within and without the local congregation.

Much of the ineffectiveness of committees can be transformed by Hestenes' thoughts. She has provided several keys for moving ministry from a positional priority to a synergistic win/win outcome. She maximizes the gifts for ministries between individuals by organizing the ministries by the way we complement each other. No longer are decisions from the top down, but rather from within the dynamic give-and-take of brothers and sisters who love the Lord and one another beyond the specific tasks.

The challenge for this book is similar to scripture: how to enflesh the ministry of Jesus Christ with his love bonding us to him and one another more than the job at hand.
