Bob Buford, the author of such books as Game Plan, Half Time, etc., has achieved great business success and has also had a period of productive ministry in his life. Buford says, "Everything significant I have ever accomplished has come in the context of a team." Look through the Scripture and you will see how often the Lord has chosen to work through teams of people. You’ll find it’s most of the time.
We have a wonderful ministry staff team at Madison Christian Church. Recently our ministry staff conducted a combined chapel for the elementary students of Madison Christian School. (It was a fantastic experience, and we look forward to doing this on a monthly basis.) Mrs. McCoy, the Elementary Principal, sent me a note after the chapel and the thing that meant the most to me was when she wrote of our ministry staff and said, "You are a great team." I cannot think of a greater compliment.
One of the great privileges of my life is to be on the same team with Jason Hauser, Justin Olson, and Matt Archibald. I genuinely love each one of them. They love each other. They are all very proficient in their individual areas of ministry – but more importantly, they are all team players. They recognize that Madison Christian Church is bigger than children’s ministry, youth ministry, or worship ministry. I thank the Lord daily for our team.
