Leading the Team-Based Church: How Pastors and Church Staffs Can Grow Together into a Powerful Fellowship of Leaders A Leadership Network Publication

A Leadership Network Publication

In Leading the Team-Based Church, George Cladis issues a clarion call for ministry teams to embrace a fresh leadership model that is not based on hierarchy, but on a process of collaboration that mirrors the relationship of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He reminds us that today’s cultural environment–where authority has basis in trust, innovation reaps rewards, and spirituality takes root in life and work–has matured past the need for the hierarchy of traditional church leadership where the pastor had the final say. Through down-to-earth stories from his own experience and those of clergy in both mainline and evangelical churches, Cladis offers an exciting alternative to the traditional forms of church leadership, enabling pastors, congregational leaders, and staff to breathe new life into their ministries and unleash the full potential of the entire ministry team.

Cladis, pastor of a fast-growing mainline congregation, demonstrates how cultural changes affecting all our institutions–not just the church–are making it easier to adopt this new model of leadership. Cladis’s practical advice will enable ministry teams to work together in ways that both embody the Christian message and call forth the full creativity and love of the entire team.

“Just when it seems that all that can be said has been said on the subject of ‘teams’, just when one has tired of the gumming of the label ‘team’ on everything in sight, along comes perhaps the most significant religious book on teams yet published. Cladis juxtaposes the theological and cultural context for team-based ministry in a model presentation of what a conversation between Bible, theology, and culture should look like.”–Leonard Sweet, dean, The Theological School and vice president, Drew University

Church Referral Network Showcases Churches to Seekers

Glendale, Arizona (PRWEB) June 3, 2006

Churchshoppers.com, the internet’s largest church referral network, is thanking its supporters with an exceptional offer that will benefit both those using the referral service to search for a home church and churches looking to grow their membership.

Churchshopper’s owner, Chad Olson explains: “We launched our service 2 months ago and although, we currently have over 103,000 churches listed in our network, the majority of these church listings contain basic information only. It is our goal and mission to provide detailed information to those families searching for the right home church, thus helping them narrow down their search to a few churches who will best suit their needs and spiritual compatibilities. We can only do that when churches have detailed profiles listed.”

The premier church referral service is so adamant about living up to its promise to those looking for a home church, they are willing to offer churches an annual premium membership free if they create their profiles during the month of June.

Church profiles include basic contact information (including link to church’s website), listing of individual services (including music and preaching style, childcare offered and typical attire worn), ministries offered and multimedia features (photo images, audio and video files)and much more. Churches can build their profiles online or over the phone with a Churchshoppers representative. There is even an option to download a written version of the profile that can be mailed or faxed back. Normally the annual fee is .97 for the standard profile and .97 for the premium profile. This is already a fraction of the price of most forms of marketing and will expose churches to searchers through a variety of media including web, print and radio.

Chad Olson reiterates, “No catches here…we just want to provide great and thorough service to those using our site to find a church! Of course, we believe we will see churches grow and flourish as a result of our network as well! A church would be crazy not to take advantage of this ground level opportunity.”

Churches who are interested should go directly to the website at www.churchshoppers.com and click on “Market Your Church.” A Churchshopper’s representative can also be reached at 1.866.695.8362.
