Becoming a Spiritually Healthy Team

The effectiveness of leadership in every organization circles around the fruitfulness of the team. And, whenever any one person enters or exits the team, the entire team changes. At face value, teams seem relatively easy to understand, but in actuality the building, empowering, and sustaining work of a healthy team requires godly intentionality. In this workshop we’ll unpack team health from the Scriptures for today.

"Hard to give just one thing that was most or least helpful to be honest. I really enjoyed the time and have much to think about still. I found the TEAMS acronym to be quite helpful to think through characteristics of healthy teams. I am not sure what I would say was the least helpful — the whole time was rich."

"We are going to unpack as a team & think about a covenant between us. This workshop provided easy ways to evaluate our standing as a ministry team and tools to use to shore up our challenges. It gave me great hope that I am on the right team at the right time."

"I thought the workshop as a whole was well organized and worth the time spent. It was useful to talk about traits of a healthy team and enemies of a ministry team. One essential ingredient that stood out for me was discussing how God empowers each person differently with not just our gifts, but with our passions and how this needs to be part of what we do in order to flourish. This was excellent timing. I am not sure that I even realized until this training why my job has been feeling differently to me. The part of my job that has allowed me to use my passions have been put on hold for months due to social distancing and safety protocols, and has been replaced by other necessary tasks."

"I'm so excited and thankful that LTI has developed and released the Team Health Assessment Tool (THAT). Every Christian team is in constant need of prayerful and deliberate renewal and continual attentiveness to the work of the Holy Spirit -- no coasting or complacency! And THAT provides a richly practical and prayerful method for assessing and seeking to improve team health in alignment with God and his transforming love."

Mitzi Mak

Selah-West Faculty

Mitzi started her professional life as a high school social studies teacher. She and her husband Jerry then served cross-culturally for ten+ years, living abroad first in India and then Kurdistan, N. Iraq. In addition to being a Spiritual Director, she now serves as a Formation and Care pastor in her local church in Houston, TX. She has graduated from LTI’s Selah Spiritual Direction training as well as LTI’s Emmaus Formational Leadership Program.

Mitzi enjoys engaging conversation, reading fiction, doing jigsaw/crossword puzzles, ocean gazing and exploring the world with Jerry through food and travel.

God has two main callings in Mitzi’s life: to care for those who care for others and to be a guide in helping others have a healthy relationship with the Trinity – recognizing God’s loving presence and activity in their lives and how to faithfully respond.

Selah was a transformative experience for me – allowing the contemplative within to emerge and to beautifully co-exist with my extraverted personality.
