Women’s ministry is an integral part of a healthy, vibrant church body. We women have unique relational, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs that can’t be met by “generic,” one-size-fits-all ministry. Check out this biblical mandate for women’s ministry:
Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. Titus 2:3-5
Scripture dictates that women should teach and minister to other women. But how? Where do we begin? Well, as in all things, Jesus is always our best example.
In her new book, The Team that Jesus Built, my friend Janet Thompson shows us how to develop, equip, and commission a women’s ministry team based on Jesus’ leadership style. Janet, who also developed the Woman to Woman mentoring program at Saddleback church, has vast experience in building and leading a women’s ministry team.
In The Team that Jesus Built, Janet shares her experience and wisdom in an easy-to-read and practical format. Whether you are “building” from scratch, “remodeling,” or simply “refurbishing” your women’s ministry you will find helpful and insightful direction. This book is packed with “how-to’s” that really do help, usable charts, forms, and case studies.
Here are just a few of the areas Janet covers:
- Mission statements and goal setting
- Job descriptions
- Team recruiting and training
- Conflict resolution
- Accountability and spiritual growth
- Ministry area evaluation and planning
