Two Are Better Than One

by Jeff Tunnell

“Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor.  For if they fall, one will lift up his companiion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one o help him up…and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”  Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 & 12

Getting together with other leaders is always an encouragement to me.  I work things out verbally, which means I need to talk issues out in person to come to a good conclusion.  Providing and receiving feedback about cell ministry occurs in the regular meeting of coaches, supervisors or zone pastors, whichever level or name of leadership you utilize. 

Luke 9 demonstrates Jesus meeting with His 12 disciples, giving them power and authority to preach and heal, followed by giving instructions for thier work. This is a wonderful help to the leadership meeting, instructing us in the following: there must be a key leader to bring the other leaders together.  He/she must know the mission clearly, including the goals to reach, the other leaders must understand mutual submission to leadership and their part on the team. Verse 10 shows us the accountability of those dispatched by the Lord along with another private meeting of the leaders.

We need the camaraderie and brotherhood of others for mutual encouragement, mentoring, sharpening of skills and broadening of ideas in our cell ministry.  Holy Spirit synergy occurs when we meet as a team!  Regularity is key in this gathering for consistent forward movement and accountability.  Don’t let this drop from your calendar!
