9780281068777: Facilitation Skills for Ministry (The SPCK Library of Ministry)

This book is designed for those who wish to encourage and empower through their leadership skills. Facilitation is about managing process - drawing people in, enabling them to contribute and holding the boundaries and values of a context to create a safe and productive place. Many ministry training courses do not teach facilitation skills per se and ministers are often left to learn on the job. Some become effective facilitators through reflection on their practice, others develop tacit skills. Many others flounder when it comes to facilitating effectively and participatively. In a culture where ministry roles increasingly involve community involvement and working with congregations who expect to participate in decision making and ministry, this skill set is one that is increasingly needed. This is particularly important in pioneer contexts where a more team-based approach is the norm.

Review:

'In the past few decades we have seen an increasing discomfort with hierarchical models of leadership. Leadership has become less about maintaining control in an organization and more about releasing the potential of all in a community of shared values and common purpose. This book is hugely helpful in bringing together theology, wisdom, study, experience and instruction for leaders of all types, not least those wanting to see young people grow and develop.' --Mark Berry, Community Mission Facilitator and Team Leader, Church Mission Society

'Many of the skills required for pioneer ministry are precisely the ones developed in youth and community work. Pioneers and youth workers are engaging a very participative culture in which many older models of leadership are no longer appropriate. This excellent book, by three experienced practitioners, will serve both constituencies very well.' --The Rt Revd Graham Cray, Archbishops Missioner and Leader of the Fresh Expressions Team
