(Part 5 of Grace Church Staffing Structure Update)
Finally we look at our last teams:
Next Steps Team
WHO? – Live Champion, Invest Champion, Volunteer Champion, Equip Champion, Communication Strategist, Coaching Director and Care/Support Champion. Each champion has sub teams.
WHAT? – Every faith journey is different and there is no such thing as assembly-line spirituality. God is a hand-crafter, not a mass-producer. We do believe that, no matter where you are on your journey, there is always a spiritual next step to take. Part of that responsibility is with the church, through programs, classes and events. The other part is up to you. Think of it this way: "You can do it. We can help." One of the ways that we can help is through "L.I.V.E.", which are four common characteristics of growing disciples:
* LIVE in community * INVEST in others * VOLUNTEER your time * EQUIP yourself
CURRENT GOALS –
• Create compelling growth environments
• Personalize – people over programs
• Develop sub-teams
• Communicate Next Steps options
We want to do everything we can to meet people where THEY are, not where we are. And in doing so help them find their way on their walk through coaching, care/support and these 4 values of a Christ-filled heart.
Lastly we have one of our most important teams. The Elder Team under the direction of our Senior Pastor, Derek Sanford. This team has huge responsibilities in the vision of Grace, the care for the people of Grace and prayer and watch over this biblical community.
