In part 5 of this part of the series for leaders and potential leaders we looked at shepherding in more detail. Now we will focus more on practical issues, starting with the practical expectations of deacons.

Following up newcomers

Who is the church?

We are the church. So when we say we are Cornerstone church, we are a body of believers who call ourselves Cornerstone Church. We aren’t some organisation, we’re a people.

At some point in our personal histories we decided that this was going to be our spiritual home. But what was it that made us decide that? Was it the coffee? The music? The boys and girls? Location? There are many reasons why people come to a church. But what keeps us here is important and it’s important how we welcome anyone new in and let them know who it is we are.

In Part 3 we discussed why Life Groups are important for us today and how they are practically worked out in the life of a church, using Cornerstone as an example.

Now the course splits into two – for those who are involved in leadership or would like to be and for those who aren’t. We’ve called these two parts “Leadership” and “Priesthood” for ease-of-use, knowing that, of course, all of us are the priesthood.

You are currently reading the first part for leaders and potential leaders, which is the fourth part of the course overall. In this part we will talk about the qualifications and functions of a deacon.

Elders’ Celebration

The Krugers being ordained onto Eldership

Last night at Central Cornerstone we celebrated God’s design for church leadership – specifically, elders and pastoral leadership. The evening was filled with mixed emotions as we said goodbye to Ian and Bernie Weeden, who are off to Nelspruit to continue the call of God on their lives there, and Barry and Charlene Ward, with their two daughters Taryn and Robyn, as they head off to Durban North to plant a church. We also celebrated the inclusion of Waldo and Anika Kruger on the eldership team, who were ordained by Greig Garratt from NewDay who is also a part of Tyrone’s NCMI team.

What a wonderful eve. It was great hearing the solid testimony around these couples – how they have pushed forward in what God has for them, how they’ve been so faithful, how they’ve touched lives. While it’s sad seeing some of the guys go, this is what the call in God is about – the apostolic, going where God wants the Gospel and the Kingdom to go, and being available for wherever He wants to send us.

After the ordaining and the sending off of the Weeden’s and Wards, Craig and Shaun told us about the movie and music escapades of these two couples which was really funny. So awesome to celebrate in this way!
