Our Connecting Streams training event on September 20 was a spirit anointed morning!
Several of the CS Leadership Team spoke about doing ministry and life in the Spirit and not our own strength. Josie Vance our guest speaker, shared with all in attendance about Teams that Work: Maximizing Synergy.
“For disciples of Jesus, team is much more than a group commitment…team reflects the glory of Christ. For disciples of Jesus, synergy is much more than “working together,” said Josie. “In Christ together, we are transformed and empowered to love one another and to magnify God’s love.”(John 17:21)
There was lots of interaction around the tables, discussing strengths & weaknesses, with the focus being on acknowledging, affirming and building each other up in our God given strengths. Many commented at the end of the morning about how they felt strengthened, encouraged and more equipped to go and be a more effective leader & team member, and sharing the Gospel with the hurting, broken and marginalized in their places of ministry and lives.
