Come And See

As posted previously, the elders interviewed two people last week. After several days of praying and considering each, we unanimously made the decision to bring one of the men up for you to meet. He and his wife will be here July 19-26. Besides getting to know them better, he will also teach on 1 Peter 4:12-19 the weekend of July 22-23. Shortly after July 4th, Faithak.com will have a profile and links to messages for you to preview. It’s an opportunity to get to know him better before they arrive. I hope you’ll take the time to read the profile and view the video messages. I wish I could share names now, but I’m sure you understand the nature of work transitions. More to come about this the first week of July.

Terrific message this weekend on Holiness.  Check it out here on Tuesday if you missed attending this weekend.  Have a great week.

The elders spent last evening interviewing two wonderful people who applied for one of the two pastor positions we are looking to fill immediately. Both men are exceptional disciples of Christ, with obvious gifts, strengths and hearts for the Lord.

I like to call them life groups, which I believe is a better description. For now, however, Faith calls them small groups. Don’t laugh, but I once heard a pastor call them a fad. What do you think? Are they important? What are your experiences with them?

Plurality of Leadership

March 25, 2017 2:57 PM

There are many Bible verses that speak to a plurality of leadership: Acts 14:23--Paul and Barnabas appoint "elders in every church", Titus 1:5--Titus is to appoint elders in every town. In fact, a quick internet search will list numerous discussions. I found “Who Should Run the Church? A Case for the Plurality of Elders” helpful.

Faith Christian Community has been an elder led church since its’ beginning. However, in practice, we haven’t operated that way. And, the bylaws are a little confusing concerning governance. That’s why we believe it’s time to clarify and revise the bylaws, and try our best to share with you how we envision it going forward.
