One of our values at CTK is community. Community is not only a high value that we must espouse, but that we must model. We want to do life and ministry together.

Lone-ranger ministry is not very fun, much less effective. Ministry is so much better when you do it as a team. As a team you are able to amplify your strengths, and cover your weaknesses. And you are able to enjoy the experience with others.

As the challenge escalates, the need for teamwork elevates. Your team must be the size of your dream. The kind of challenge determines the kind of team you need to build.

Challenge Type
New Creative
Controversial United
Changing Fast and Flexible
Unpleasant Motivated
Diversified Complementary
Long-term Determined
Huge Experienced

The key leader tends to get a disproportionate amount of the credit when things go well (and probably the blame when things do not). Be sure to keep in mind that this is a group mission....

To create an authentic Christian community that effectively reaches out to unchurched people in love, acceptance and forgiveness so that they may experience the joy of salvation and a purposeful life of discipleship.
