Dr. Terry W. Dorsett

Author Dr. Terry W. Dorsettabout this book: Most churches in America are small. Their size keeps them from being able to fully fund a pastoral salary. Therefore, many pastors of small churches are forced to work a second job in addition to serving their church. Though such pastors are to be commended for their commitment, trying to balance a seculer job, a ministerial job, and spend time with their family, often leaves pastors on the edge of burnout. In order to avoid burn out, pastors with two jobs must learn to delegate some high level ministry to others. Pastors need to create leadership teams who will work in partnership with them to make pastors healthier and ministry more effective. Developing Leadership Teams in the Bivocational Church lays out a concise and effective plan for how small-church congregations can build and strengthen their leadership teams.

The first half of the book explains many New Testament church leadership principles that have often been forgotten by the American church. The second half of the book provides lessons, exercises, and worksheets to train lay people to help their pastors with some of the most time-consuming ministry duties. Those lessons are laid out in six fun, easy-to-use, and successfully tested training sessions. God never intended for pastors to do the ministry alone. By learning how to work together on pastoral leadership teams, lay leaders and pastors can both effectively share the Gospel with their community and provide healthy leadership to their churches.
