There are many philosophies of service in the body of Christ, and God works mightily in diverse ways to make his name known in the world. At Midtown Fellowship, we seek to follow Christ through the working out of our mission statement: “creating a movement of gospel transformation through multiple congregations”.
This statement guides our efforts in specific ways as we seek to serve the world around us:
- Gospel Transformation: We believe in the priesthood of the believer (1 Peter 2:9-10), and to encourage and deepen the growth of the priesthood, we believe in the call of Ephesians 4, “to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ”. What this means is that a large percentage of our budget is intentionally dedicated to equipping our people as ambassadors of Christ (2 Corinthians 5) in order to impact the places where God has specifically called them.
- Multiple Congregations: We believe that God has specifically called us to the neighborhoods and communities where we meet. What this means for us as a local, community congregation, is that we want to step into the world around us, not only with finances, but also with our hands and feet as the body of Christ.
At Midtown, there are a variety of service roles where you can use your God-given gifts, talents and skills.
- Directors are in charge of an activity, ministry or department.
- Coaches lead and care for our Discipleship Group leaders.
- Trainers can equip leaders through developing skills and competencies.
- Resources help by researching, writing and editing content used by Midtowners.
- Discipleship Group Leaders lead a group of 4-16 people in weekly discussions of Scripture.
- Apprentices are being trained and equipped for future leadership at Midtown.
- Servants sacrificially give their time and skills across the Midtown movement.
