From the Back Cover

Discover your spiritual gifts, personal style, and God-given passion for serving in the body of Christ

Network, the leading course for discovering spiritual gifts and empowering people for ministry has been revised and updated. This material, developed in partnership with the Willow Creek Association, helps churches appropriately guide people to the place of ministry that best reflects who they are. Churches will see increased participation, greater effectiveness, more enthusiasm, and less burn-out in their congregation. Believers in their church will discover the spiritual gifts God has given them. They will have a better understanding of God’s will for their lives because of gaining a better understanding of who God created them to be.

This complete seminar in a box includes a leader’s guide; a participant’s guide; a DVD with drama vignettes; and a CD-ROM with a coach’s guide, a user’s guide, and a PowerPoint®. Participants will be assessed on their personal style, spiritual passion, and gifts. Network works with any size group, from small groups of 4 to 12 to large groups of 15 to 150. The six Network sessions can be presented successfully in three flexible formats: three sessions of two hours each; six sessions of forty-five minutes each; or one- two- or three-day retreats.

While I endorse Bugbee's What You Do Best in the Body of Christ: Discover Your Spiritual Gifts, Personal Style, and God-Given Passion [Paperback], I do not recommend the kit. The DVD segments are a complete waste of time and are empty of any real information. They could be described as art. The Powerpoint is not necessary. The booklets (not the book mentioned above) are good in that they have the assessment tests. But, for an educated group, they are, well, too simple and their expense cannot be justified. (The program of NETWORK is too complicated, not the booklet.)

This program assumes you are going to make this program a science project, complete with the expectation that you are going to have get everybody at your church on board. Then, you are going to have to interview people before allowing them to serve, test them, and then put them in the ministry on a trial basis. This program emphasizes way too much control.

I am so ashamed I bought this that I am reimbursing my church $300 of the $500 bill it cost for the kit and 40 booklets. You do not need this product. Design your own study, buy some assessment tests online, and do it that way. This kit is no shortcut. You will not want everything in here.

Seems like, in an ever increasingly complex world, we do not need more tangled fishing lines, especially in the church. Just have your own Bible study, do a test (for whatever it is worth -- maybe not much) and let people choose a ministry they are interested in and let them try it. It really can be that simple.

Sure a million people are doing the network thing. But this is definitely not for the church who is already busy and successful in ministry.
