What Is The Leadership Transition Team
Using Acts 6 as a paradigm for changing church structure to meet needs, our leadership transition team will help us change from our current model of pastor/deacons to elders/deacons church government.
This team will be composed of qualified men who are potential elders. They will be nominated by the church body. Do note that just because men are nominated to this team it does not mean they will be elders once the team is dismantled. That is possible, but remember that this team is temporary. It's purpose is solely to help the church transition.
Specifically, the purpose of this team will be to lead the church through presentation, investigation, adoption, and implementation of being elder led.
The benefits of this team are twofold. First, it models plurality of leadership for the church. Second, it is a proving ground for elders and leaders. It gives a chance to demonstrate and develop the kind of qualities that will make for being a good elder.
The qualifications for this position are he must be a male, he must desire to do it, he must be spiritually mature, he must be able to teach, he must be able to lead, and he must demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit.
How To Nominate
Please very carefully observe the following items and dates:
This is a very exciting time for us as a church! Please be much in prayer for God’s help and direction. And may God be pleased to do for us what he did for the church in Acts 6 – to cause the Word of God to spread all through Newberry and to cause the number of disciples to increase rapidly!
In Christian Love and Joy.
Pastor Andrew Manwarren
