I’m excited that our volunteer team has recently begun monthly meetings to talk about the ministry, share stories, pray for one another and keep up to date on the happenings of the church. I would love to do a book discussion for our team, as a way to expand the conversation and to sneak in some training in an engaging way. I have to admit, I’m all over the map with which book to choose.
Originally, I thought about Formational Children’s Ministry by Ivy Beckworth. Though it’s a great book, inspirational, and profound – it seemed a little much for our first book discussion. I’m presently considering Creating Magic or Simple Church, which now that I think about, seem to be a bit contradictory. I’ve also kicked around a few leadership books, or something unconventional like Don Miller’s books. I want it to be a fairly easy read, but something that is going to be useful and applicable.
So, lend me your advice – have you read an especially great book geared towards the volunteer team? Leave a comment and let me know about it!
