Fellowship has embraced the concept of team staffing. We use teams to teach, lead worship, do student ministry, children’s ministry and just about any other ministry we have engaged. The staff team, under the leadership of the Elder Board, exists to serve the greater team of our lay leaders. The staff team is here to equip and enable them to do ministry. (Ephesians 4:11-12) We want to produce and release spiritual leaders.
The staff team concept also keeps Fellowship from becoming a personality-driven church. This is Christ’s church and we are here to serve him. We often say around Fellowship, “we want our name nowhere and our influence everywhere.” This is not only true of our church, but also of our staff. Our staff ministers are to be humble servants.
