Vital information is also presented in the text concerning team building in churches. The author affirms that team building in churches is an integral facet that enables pastors grow in their spiritual calling. Team building is also said to integrate members of a church together so as to facilitate their deeper relationship not only among themselves but also with their creator. I have learnt from the text that effective team building is enhanced when continued meetings among the leaders is promoted and ensuring that church members meet to deliberate and meditate on the word of God through sessions such as Bible studies as this will enhance discipleship, friendship and unity in the church.
The concept of team building and compassionate change need to be implemented not only in the Methodist church but also in the settings of Korean Americans among others. The ministry setting of Korean Americans indicates that most people go to church to have fellowship, maintain their cultural tradition, social status and positions. The book also shows that most members have a problem with weekday activities because they work all through the week. This shows that people are more worried about their work and not committed or passionate about church. However, most of them are not well off and they have to struggle to meet their daily needs. Korean Americans are people who love to go to church and pray. This is the only way they will be able to maintain their tradition in an otherwise different background.
