The mark of a great church leader is how many people will join his or her team. One way to accomplish this is by teamwork. The Promised Land Team Building Program for Churches ensures that ministers and volunteer workers work together to accomplish the goals of the church. Teamwork strengthens the church and prepares church employees and members to survive the tough times by empowering them to use their talents to improve the church.

OVERVIEW OF PROCESS
Step 1. Needs Assessment
Sometimes problems can be difficult for a church leader to identify. A church leader trying to diagnose a problem may find it difficult to observe symptoms, as a superficial assessment is often made that fails to identify the causes of the problem. A technical analysis is conducted which will provide the team building program an opportunity to have a positive impact on the church.
Step 2. Vision Creation
Specifying the preferred expectation or outcome is important. The team members need to be as clear as possible about where they wish to go. If the team can visualize the changes they wish to see and the difficulties which may block them, they will have a better chance of persevering and achieving.
Step 3. Improvement Strategies
After the vision has been clarified strategies for success can be developed. There are many tactics for team development, but not all can be implemented at once. Appropriate strategies are affordable and effective.
Step 4. Monitoring Progress
The team building process needs to be monitored. Progress can be successfully monitored by using mechanisms such as regular meetings, clearly defined responsibilities, open discussions, progress reports and etc.
