    Ministry Leadership Team & Deacon Update


    This past week we began the year with two good leadership meetings. On Monday we met as the Ministry Leadership Team and spent the evening discussing ways to streamline some of the administration of the church. In particular we spent some time discussing the positioning of some of the churches investments, and the establishment of some new guidelines for benevolence. In addition to this we discussed the planned ministry and outreaches of Grace Point for the next twelve months.
     
    On Saturday the Pastoral team and the Deacons met for a day of training and sharing vision. It was such a blessing to have 16 men in the meeting, some of whom have been serving the Lord at Grace Point for many years.

     
        

    We spent some time looking at what the Bible teaches about serving as a deacon, and how we can all work together to grow the Body of Christ. Moving on to practical ministry we discussed the assignment of deacon families and assisting in the visitation of guests.
     
    Between the MLT and the Deacons, the Lord has blessed Grace Point with men and women of character and integrity, who are truly servant-hearted leaders. We need to remember to pray for them as they serve tirelessly in so many different roles in the church.
     
    As we looked to the new year, there was a rising of optimism and enthusiasm for all that the Lord has in store for us;  sending mission teams, hosting mission teams, community outreaches, Warford bible club, life fellowship groups, and so much more. Jesus is building his church and it is exciting to see it and be a part of it.
