Tom Phillips says in Leaders on Leadership, that if a team is going to be healthy there are some basic principles to remember.
“An effective ministry team exhibits discipline on three planes: spiritual, physical and mental. Discipline also operates on two organizational levels: personal and corporate. Discipline is vital. A physical unkempt team is normally undisciplined in other ways. Physical discipline, however, is secondary to spiritual. It is mandatory that every person in the team be responsible for spiritual intake, communion with God and his own personal intimacy with Christ and others. As Billy Graham has often said regarding early mornings, “No Bread, no bread.” In my life, it is my goal to have a daily quiet time, exercise physically every day (even when traveling) and to read something to refresh my mind and help me to grow in knowledge.” (page 225)
