“God’s Work takes Team work” is a new workshop from Toolkit Ministries. It made its debut at an annual teacher training last Saturday at Children’s Bible Ministries of MD in Upperco, MD. These teachers are preparing to start up the school season with “character building” Bible based clubs in the public schools of MD. This class turned out to be a blessing usable by all of God's people in working together in unity resulting in reflecting His glory and working His purpose in each community.
God’s game plan can clearly be seen in Ephesians 4. It gives the commitment required by His people (Eph.4:1-7), the purpose of His gifts provided to each believer (Eph.4:11-16) and the evidence displayed by God’s functioning team (Eph.4: 21-31). Take some time and discover team building – God’s way.
The workshop included building and maintaining volunteer teams whether small such as classroom teaching teams or medium groups like Jr. church teams or AWANAs or larger annual events such as Vacation Bible School. We included some advance planning worksheets, problem solving techniques and transitional demonstrations to make team-teaching seamless. In addition, we went over conflict resolution and practical helps for all team members.
The workshop was a result of a challenge by CBS director, Denise Morgan, to create a class to encourage experience teachers to recruit and build up future leaders through team teaching. Thank you, Denise!!
This class is now available for in-church seminars and Christian education conferences. To request a workshop or half-day seminar, please contact Dr. Nancy Shields directly (email: [email protected])
