As I Peter 4-8-11 says
“Above all love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude if sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each one should us whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, He serves to do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God May be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the Power forever and ever.”
Therefore, I understand and agree to the following calling and commitment as a Pastor/Associate Pastor @ COC.
Calling: I recognize that…
- I represent Jesus, His kingdom and this church to people I find myself involved with daily; both those within and outside the church
- I have been entrusted by the Lord to be an example in this church by expressing vision, value and practices. I have a part in leading others to follow Christ, recognizing that as a representative of the church, others will follow what I think, say and do. My calling is to model Christ through humility, the example of servant hood, and Godly Stewardship of my time, the church’s property and its resources.
