Synergy! Illustrated

By December 28, 2009June 19th, 2014No Comments

“Together We Can Accomplish More” is the  mantra of the GARBC. John Wooden, pastor of First Baptist in New Berlin, WI, shares the story of a horse-pull in Canada. One horse pulled 9,000 pounds, another 8,000. Together you would expect them to pull 18,000 pounds. Not so! When teamed together, they pulled 30,000 pounds.

The simultaneous action of separate agents working together has a greater total effect than the sum of their individual efforts. Because of synergism, more can be done in a team effort than can be accomplished solo.

In the local church and in the GARBC, everything we do takes teamwork and trust. Every person  is valuable and needed. The church and the association are teams. Together we can build for the Lord!
