Teamwork and Follow-Up

Growth Point—12

How did the ministry of Christ continue after the Resurrection? In the salutation to Acts we find the answer: “The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach” (Acts 1:1).

Jesus didn’t simply do the ministry Himself, but He taught His disciples how to do it as well. He involved them in the ministry, mentoring and training along the way.

Ministry today is likewise most effective when we train and involve others in the process. And what a better week to involve others than this in which we have much follow up from Resurrection Sunday!

In this Growth Points podcast, I share several pointers on how to effectively engage others with you in the Gospel ministry.
