He's the King of kings and Lord of lords, the Savior and God with us. However, can we really know Jesus as our best friend? Robert C. Crosby shows us how we can experience Jesus in a new and intimate way -- the same way His friends knew Him. Drawing on the close relationships that Jesus had while on earth, the wisdom of great men and women of God through the ages, and personal experience, Crosby takes readers to that place of personal transformation. More than a passage, it is a day-by-day reality where deep abiding friendship takes hold. Side by side with Jesus, readers discover the greatest friendship in the universe as it was intended to be.From the Hardcover edition.
A committee is not the same thing as a team. To become a great team, a group must have a goal that is deeply challenging, a leader who is creatively empowering, and a willingness to work within a collaborative community that honors the Bible. The Bible is full of examples of great things accomplished through teaming leaders. Scripture also provides a compelling model from which church communities and teams can learn to live and serve in light of the "Divine Team" - the Trinity. Author Robert C. Crosby provides several innovative ways in which biblical teams reflect the workings and nature of the Trinity and thus the image of God. Revealing what he calls "The Four C's of Great Teams" - The Character, The Carrot, The Coach, and The Context - Crosby shows how successful teams reach their goals more effectively. Conversely, he also addresses the "Four Fatal Teaming Errors" and how to avoid unnecessary, time-consuming missteps. This book provides biblical motivations, vivid examples, and practical approaches for creating a teaming culture in any faith community. Crosby, a leader who has built teams as a senior pastor, youth leader, and university administrator, is now training and mentoring a new generation of pastors and leaders.
