Critical data show that half of all churches have some form of multiple staff, and many others are considering the addition of professional staff in the future. Gary McIntosh has written a comprehensive manual for the 21st-century church, focusing on how, why, who, and when to add staff in a way that encourages growth.
Speaking from 17 years of experience as a church growth consultant, McIntosh carefully analyzes the rationale for multiple staffing. He provides many valuable helps, including models for team ministry, keys to productive team ministry, ways to determine what staff to add, techniques for effective interviews, and steps in managing staff conflict. Charts, graphs, and illustrations throughout amplify the information that goes beyond theory to practical relevance.
