1. A unified team is sacrificial
This is not a thing of convenience or comfort. Ministry is not about me.
2. Unified teams are individuals not individualism
We are building people, not building self. Gifts are for the edification of the church, not self.
3. A unified team celebrates differences
Sometimes we carry things from our past into our present, then use it to disqualify people from the team. Leave your past in the past.
4. A unified team is generous
We’re not just talking about money. We need to be generous in our time and resources. Also, be generous with your words because the world is not generous.
5. A unified team is compassionate
May we identify with each other.
6. A unified team loves without hypocrisy
There should be a genuine love for one another. If you’re willing to ask God to help you love someone, He will honor that.
7. A unified team has an atmosphere of honor
We need to be a culture that honors volunteers and the leaders around us.
8. A unified team works hard
We live in an entitled generation, may we never be like that. We’ll never be content with the status quo. We’ll never live off the fat of the land. We’ll always wok hard to achieve more.
9. A unified team is passionate
We need to be zealous about doing ministry at CCk. God isn’t working everywhere, but He is working here. Let’s be excited about that!
10. A unified team prays together
It starts and ends with prayer. You need to be praying for your families, your teams, and each other.
11. A unified team is not paranoid
We need to trust God to fight battles for us. As a leader, people will talk about you, judge you, attack you. Many times, the more we want to defend ourselves, the more we get attacked. The more influence you have, the more attacked you get. If you don’t have any critics, you’re not leading. We can’t focus on the critiques of other people. Putting out fires can become a full time job. Don’t seek revenge nor repay evil for evil. Bless those you curse you.
