Full Product Description
Skills for Collaborative Ministry will help you to work more effectively with other people, both inside and outside of the Church. Each chapter focuses on a particular skill – such as team building, facilitation, diversity skills, conflict resolution and evaluation techniques - outlines the theory and the theology behind it, and gives practical guidance and advice.
Written by an experienced team, the book includes exercises for both individuals and groups, along with a range of ideas that can be adapted to your own context. It will enable you to work collaboratively with confidence and skill.

Skills For Collaborative MinistryBarry Vendy, via The Good Book Stall
I’m sure nobody would dispute the necessity for collaboration in the work of ministry, within churches and also with other agencies, but not all those involved have the skills necessary to work together effectively. This book should help! In an illuminating introductory chapter, the three authors (who are Director, Assistant Director and tutor at the Midlands Centre for Youth Ministry) emphasise the biblical, Trinitarian authority for collaboration, stress the link between ministry and mission, and expose some of the barriers to good cooperation. In pursuit of their chief aim, which is to concentrate on necessary skills, they then tackle things that can make or break effectiveness, including group work processes; facilitation and reflection; vision building and teamwork; supervision, conflict and evaluation. There are helpful discussion topics at the end of each chapter, plus a full bibliography and references. The skills highlighted in this book “will help teams to do things right as well as to do the right things”. If I was starting out in ministry again, this is a volume that I would definitely consult.
