Primary Ministry Area: Gathering

Reports to: Staff Team Lead for day-to-day; Kettering Elders for preaching topics

Position Summary: Preaches at Apex Kettering gatherings, equips others to preach at Apex Kettering gatherings, provides pastoral leadership to Apex Kettering Staff, and leads the Kettering Gathering Staff toward the implementation of Apex’s vision, mission, and strategy.


Philosophy of Gatherings: The House Church is our primary disciple-making vehicle. The gathering is the corporate meeting of house churches. The gathering serves to propel our mission forward in the smaller house church family units living in pursuit of Jesus on His mission. It serves as a megaphone to put on display the works and character of God while also being a funnel to direct people toward Christ, His Church, and His cause. The big idea here is movement, movement toward God and toward people. It moves us toward the relational environments of house churches and missional engagement. We want to move a person from the macro to the micro, for it is in the micro that true health, growth, and maturity can be assessed and fostered. God pursues people to rescue them (coming to them as a missionary God). The gathering strategy, therefore, is focused primarily on equipping and sending, not bringing. While gatherings are geared toward equipping the saints, we continually highlight Jesus and the gospel realizing unbelievers may be present, and we all need to hear the gospel continually.
