|What is a Ministry Servant?|
Ministry Servants are those individuals who are actively doing the work of the ministry inside and/or outside of the congregation. We deliberately chose this term, rather than "membership," because membership often connotes a passive role. While many congregations have employed membership programs effectively, we felt it was important to use the title Ministry Servant to remind people that they themselves are to be ministers of the good news about Yeshua, i.e. the Gospel.
For this reason, we have sought to engage many people into a variety of areas of ministry at the congregation. Ministry responsibility is not confined to within the door of the building where we meet, but rather it is a lifestyle for those who want to carry on the mission of Yeshua. We have received a gift from the Lord and we must be good stewards of the grace given to us (1 Peter 4:10).
Ministry is not done only by the leaders of the Congregation. Rather, it is the job of the Elders to train up others for the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:12-3). The body of Messiah is built up well only if the members of that body are actively serving the Lord by ministering to one another and to the community at large.
