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!
