Profile for all Staff Leadership Team members:
Members of the Faith Christian Community Staff Leadership Team (SLT) will serve our family in the dual role of Elder and Staff Pastor. At this time, the SLT will be comprised of the Teaching Pastor of Vision and Leadership and the Pastor of Ministry and
Management. This is a co-leadership model similar to the one proposed at Willow Creek Community Church as part of their succession plan. The SLT works together as a team, deferring to one another’s gifting, experience, and expertise and then speaking into
the Eldership with one unified voice. They must meet the qualifications of an “Overseer/Elder” as specified in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9. Their ambition, commitment, and style in leadership must reflect the challenges of 1 Peter 5:1-4.
We are looking for leaders who are spiritually, emotionally, and relationally mature, possessing a genuine desire to serve and a passionate love for the church. They are Kingdom builders, not empire builders, working to declare the gospel and demonstrate
the way of Jesus in every corner of the world. SLT members are expected to embrace the vision, mission, and values of Faith Christian Community as well as our statement of faith. They are men with nothing personal to prove, fully committed to team at every
level of ministry, and able to work with diverse groups of people.
The Vision of Faith Christian Community: (From Acts 1:8)
“People living as Spirit-empowered examples of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in every corner of the World.”
The Mission of Faith Christian Community: (From Matthew 28:18-20)
“Faith Christian Community exists to invite the world into a relationship with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
to teach people to follow the way of Jesus, to train followers of Jesus
to embrace and use the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and to launch disciples
of Jesus into every corner of the world.
The Values of Faith Christian Community:
Faith - Trusting God for great things
Christian - Following Jesus wherever He leads
