    Quarterly Unstuck Church Report

This week’s edition of Rick Warren’s Ministry ToolBox includes an article adapted from Simply Strategic Volunteers on the difference between empowerment and delegation. The premise of the article is that we can learn a lot about working with volunteers in our church if we study how Jesus modeled leadership with the twelve apostles. Among other things, Jesus:

  • Prepared them for the challenges they would face by inviting them to
    hang out with him and learn from his teachings and interactions with
  • Encouraged them to continue reaching more people by sharing the Good News and preparing others for ministry.
  • Asked the apostles to provide care for the people they were trying to reach.
