This helpful resource provides a blueprint for developing a spiritually strong and effective ministry team in the local church. Westing covers issues of team leadership, staff development, role expectations, goal setting, and hiring procedures. Also included are team projects for more in-depth development. Church leaders will look to this book for guidance both when starting a new church and for each subsequent hire in the life of the church. Pastors will find this resource useful as a regular reference to “tune up” their staff to foster a healthy, unified, effective team.
