Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0940999730, Paperback)The following chapters are offered to those who decide to go to the mission field in TEAMS. The author understands the constraints under which the members of these teams must function in harmony. The principles of team interaction are general enough that any team, even one with a formal hierarchy, can benefit from the things discussed, but the problems of voluntary cooperation will receive major consideration. Members of the church of Christ attempt to model their church organization after the New Testament pattern. The result of this attempt has been the planting of thousands of congregations around the world with no hierarchical organization beyond the local congregation. The uniting force is a common shared belief on the part of the members of the congregations who maintain strict congregational autonomy. As long as each congregation has only to deal with its own internal needs, congregational autonomy meets with very few problems but when a job comes along that few independent churches can handle by themselves there is the obvious need for inter-congregational cooperation..
