In 1 Corinthians 4:1, the word used for “ministers” of the Lord literally means “under-rower.” An under-rower refers to servants who sat below the decks of ships to pull the oars and row in time with one another at their captain’s commands. Moreover, in Ephesians 4:13, the word used for the Body attaining the “fullness” of Christ is defined as “full, filled, or complete, like a ship fully manned with sailors.”
Together, we are one Crew. We serve on various sub-Crews to help keep things running smoothly and in step with our Captain, Jesus.
Each Crew is responsible for contributing in specific and significant ways. Crew job descriptions and requirements are available from Crew Leaders. Here is a listing of some of our Crews:
Crew Members may serve on one or several Crews, including Spiritual or Service Crews. Both elements of service to God and others are critical to our spiritual and character development for the fulfillment of God’s Kingdom purpose for our lives.
Serving at the Ministry House is a lifestyle of devotion and servanthood to Jesus, His Kingdom, and His people. We recommend reviewing What We Expect of Crew Members before moving forward to fill out the Crew Member Application. Crew Members are invited to enjoy all of the benefits of what is offered at the Ministry House and are also expected to serve, participate, and contribute. Through this, God's grace is multiplied and He does wonderful things among us. (Consider Acts 4:32-35.)
We are deeply committed to seeing our Crew Members stay in step with God's will for their lives and we believe that each Crew Member is unique and hand-picked by God to serve at our Ministry House. This is not a commitment we enter into lightly. Those desiring Crew Membership must serve as Volunteers for at least one year before being eligible for Crew Membership or any position of leadership. This gives us all time to get to know one another and gain discernment about what God might be doing in our lives. We want what is best, according to what God wants for you and for us.
