Team Organization

●      Lead Team

A team of volunteers that feel a calling to lead other volunteers into their God-given purpose through serving the weekend services.

●      Team Break Outs

Teams with Pre-requisites (Background Check/Lifestyle Commitment)

▪       Some teams have more strict pre-requisites due to their contact with children or due to special safety policies within our organization.

Lifestyle Commitment

▪       The Lifestyle Commitment is our resource to allow people that may never have heard about the ways of Jesus to put a goal in front of them for living a Godly life.

●      Org Chart

Every good organization has a good org chart.  This is a representation of the team structure with who reports to who clearly defined.  There should never be a time that staff or volunteers do not know who they can go to with issues, concerns or questions.

●      Leadership Development

Coaches Monthly Meeting

▪       Coaches are individuals that have a desire to coach multiple teams from a biblical and practical standpoint.  The coaches are involved in a monthly meeting where we encourage, celebrate and train them in best practices for leading amazing teams.

Coaches Monthly Leadership Email

▪       The monthly email is another opportunity to communicate with the coaches during the month.  Since leadership rises and falls on communication, we want to make sure that our coaches are well informed and prepared to lead affectively.

●      Team Huddles Structure – Sunday morning pre-service (7 Minutes)

Strategize

▪       Anything new or modified in our normal procedures are discussed here to make sure that everyone is aware and ready.

Motivate

▪       Everyone needs encouragement and motivation.  We don’t want to miss an opportunity to build up our team weekly.

Celebrate

▪       StrategizeTeams thrive on celebration.  We might cover the amount of salvations from the previous week, or any other testimonies that are connected to their team

Declaration

▪       StrategizeWe always end with a declaration from the Word of God, so that they are prepared with a scripture and prayer for the day ahead.

Next Steps

3 Month Connect

▪       This is a personal touch to make sure that teams are healthy and being supported in the best way that meets their current needs.

Sit one, Serve One

▪       Since we have multiple services, we like the idea of the team being fed by the weekend services and not just serving all the time.  A healthy team is one that is constantly receiving a biblical message for their lives.

Fun

Doing Life Together

▪       Teams do not remain healthy if there is not a time of fun every once in a while. We want our teams to have fun together outside of church.  This is where real relationships are built.

Grow Team Party

▪       This is our annual celebration of our teams.  It is the most sought after invite of the year, because it is designed to be the most fun party of the year.  Our staff throws the party, so that none of our volunteers serve this party at all.  We spend a significant amount of resources on this, and it is well worth it.
