Please continue to pray for the functioning and progress of the church ministries. So far, we have conducted two workshops, the next one we need to conduct will be on supervision, follow-up and implementation. We also need to consider several other aspects :
1 routine meetings:
1.1 Content for the weekly pastoral team meeting: Weekly rotations of discussion on shepherding, equipping, whole church matters, pastoral needs and feedback by the reverend and follow up on the on-going projects etc.
1.2 Position of the Session: to redefine the focus and roles of the sessions meetings.
2 Development of supervisory ministry: each ministry is working according to plan, how should the committee stategise and execute better? At present, although most of the ministries have been making plans, we need to further integrate all the programs, including zonal work plans, so as to plan out the overall church plans, and allow proper deployment of resources.
3 Ministry tenure : Meeting resolved that in addition to the tenure of the articles of association, the term of office for other persons in charge of the ministry ( Chairperson ) shall be for two years has been implemented from 2013. But from an administrative viewpoint, the session still needs to assess and evaluate each ministry’s chairperson to ensure that the church’s manpower use is effective.
