The Ministry of Operations houses the precious ministries of proclamation. We believe that ministry comes in three flavors. Leading, Caring, and Proclaiming. Our Ministry of Leadership is herein referred to as Services, our Ministry of Caring is referred to as Admin Ministries, and we are the Ministry of Proclamation. This page will highlight the vital ministries that reach out to the collected church body with special opportunities to fulfill the ministry of the Word of Christ. It is our goal to involve every church member in at least one if not more of these vital ministries. We are responsible for the important ministry of Making, Marking, and Maturing Christians. The Office for Operations assists leaders to invigorate the ministry of Gods people in daily life and within the Church. The goal is to expand the capacity of the Church for effective and transformative mission in response to the Baptismal Covenant and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

It is his responsibility to ensure communication and growth within this vital part of the body. He must be well received and respected by the overall church staff as he will be accountable to the senior pastor for these ministries.
