You then, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable people who will also be qualified to teach others. (2 Tim 2:1-2)
We are in the process of developing a Leadership Development Consortium, a fancy title for raising up present and future leaders of our congregation. This is open to ANYONE who is interested in learning about Christ-honoring spiritual leadership in the local church body of Christ.
By the grace of God, we will go deeper into our friendship, removing masks through confession of our brokeness & sin, and reminding one another of the forgiveness of our sins in Jesus (absolution). Confession & absolution, we know, is old school! But its really good stuff. We will also read a lot of bible and good theology together, put things in writing, provide real-time ministry opportunities so that we minister in the messy places with grace & truth, we'll hit conferences together, and learn to mentor others in our fellowship. Those who are recognized to have a Pastoral call on their lives, we will move toward ordination and calling to the Pastoral Team. Another way of saying it is that we will do life & ministry together. Like this:
1 Thessalonians 2:8 So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.
This page will also provide resources for your soul, in this matter.
