Why a team ministry?
The church is a body, according to the Bible. Therefore, every member belongs, and every member has a functional role to play. The church functions best when the various members work as connected systems to carry out the will of the head, which is Christ. Ministry and support teams are one way to connect members systematically to be the body of Christ.
