“Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from who the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.” Ephesians 4:15-16
WHAT ARE MINISTRY TEAMS?
• Ministry teams view their work in deeply spiritual terms, reflecting the love and community of the Trinity
• They are open, available, flexible, responsive, and
representative of the people they lead
• They put a premium on including people in decision making
• They are a critical means by which Restoration
supports and underpins the attainment of its Vision and Mission
• They are relational and network forming and provide a wonderful opportunity for growth and discipleship
• Ministry teams risk, fail, learn, and grow and are more likely to innovate - to draw accurate pictures of reality and find meaningful ways to communicate the Gospel
• They embrace the importance of each child of God using his or her gifts for ministry
• They are empowered and entrusted by Session to build up the body toward maturity in order to fulfill her God-given mission.
