From "team" to "community"
I was leading a training session at a church today: 2 hours to cover basics of youth ministry and a quick session on "team work"! Actually it was a great session, these things depend so much on how the participants respond. In preparing for it I got thinking about how "community" differs from "team". Team is needed - common goal, everyone playing a part etc., but community is our distinctive as Christians.

At the centre of a ministry there should exist a spiritual community; a covenant group that is attentive to God, discerning the Spirit and caring for one another. In youth ministry our methods are as significant as our message Mark Yaconelli: 'Contemplative Youth Ministry'
