Ministry Development Team
Ministry teams are the key way that we live out our shared vision at Resurrection. The Ministry Development Team is responsible for helping support and develop our ministry team leaders, providing support to our ministry teams with goal setting and team evaluation, and helping all RLC disciples live out our shared vision by facilitating participation in ministry teams.
- Establish and maintain processes that facilitate effective life-cycle management and operations of the RLC ministry teams.
- Develop a process for and facilitate the formation of new ministry teams.
- Be the initial point of contact for RLC disciples interested in starting a new ministry team.
- Maintain a list of teams, groups, members, and their current status (active, hiatus, closed) and communicate these to the congregation and Congregation Council.
- Collect reports from ministry teams and groups according to the schedule established by the Congregation Council.
- Evaluate all ministry teams for possible duplications or opportunity to combine teams.
