The church is composed of lots of people. Some are young; some are old; some are in-between. Some have been working to understand and follow God for many years and some for days or weeks. Some are still trying to decide if understanding and following God is important for their life. We recognize that each person is at a different stage in that relationship.
Whether we believe it or not and whether we know it or not, every one of us serves God in some way. That makes each one of us a minister.
Scary Thought? Perhaps.
God is clear that we all can (and do) serve him in how we conduct our life, the examples we provide, the words we use with each other, and how we treat each other. That makes everyone a minister to someone. Some days each of us does better than on other days. The thought to keep with us - God is with each of us as we deal with our life and help out in the lives of others.
The Growing Process
Although we don't try to separate or elevate one person over another, we are aware that God commands that certain leadership and assistance should exist in the church. We present these groups for you so that you may become familiar with each of these people who have made a commitment to lead and serve in some specific manners within the church body.
