Collaboration is a powerful tool in the hands of people who understand that their gifts and talents can be combined for a greater good. When we come together as Christians we are not losing a piece of ourselves but we are gaining more of Him! People sharpen us to become more like Jesus. Your strength combined with mine may be just what the community needs. Collaboration often precedes powerful work in any community. We can join forces to create a space where lives are changed, communities are healed, people are helped and God’s purposes are truly fulfilled.

SELF CHECK-UP
Here are things to ask yourself as you contemplate collaboration:
  1. What specifically are we aiming to do?
  2. Does the collaboration/project/idea reflect my spiritual beliefs?
  3. Am I the person that God called to lead this venture or am I the person who will support it being done?
  4. What gifts do I have that can support the project/idea?
  5. What gifts am I “willing” to share?
  6. What am I “not willing” to share? Why?
  7. How much time can I invest in this collaboration?
  8. What am I expecting as a return on my investment of time?
  9. Do I want to be paid for my skills? If so, how much, why & when?
  10. Am I willing to pray continually for the success of this collaboration?
  11. Are my motives to see its success even without me involved?
  12. Can I serve even if I am not chosen to lead?
  13. Do I have the maturity to stay as we work out the kinks of working together?
  14. Do I have the interpersonal skills to work as a team member?
  15. Do I need training in order to work more effectively with others?
  16. Who will take responsibility for this work if it is not what we expected?
  17. Who do I want to get the credit for this work if it is successful?
