MINISTRIES

MINISTRY

MINISTRY SYSTEM:

The Bellville Church of Christ is a servant-driven congregation and strives to resemble the body of Christ. Our congregation is a place to worship together, serve each other and for those seeking the Lord’s salvation.

All christians have special spiritual gifts that are blessings to the church. Our Ministry System is where your talents can be used to the glory of God and where you will feel fulfilled by serving in our congregation.

As the Lord blesses us with a growing congregation, our workload increases. The church’s Ministry System is designed to facilitate the distribution of responsibilities evenly, enhancing spiritual growth and giving our involvement practical meaning as we walk with the Lord.





STRUCTURE:

Facilitators lead our 20 established ministries. Each ministry is autonomous, operating within a mutually accountable framework determined by our congregational structure, in support of the mission of Christ. Teams continually evaluate their performance to ensure we are achieving our best for His Kingdom. We celebrate where God’s church is being served well.

Collaboration drives the success of each ministry and the Ministry System as a whole. An Action Group Committee, representative of all ministries, directs the teams and is committed to execute it's decisions to benefit the congregation.

This committee meets monthly to discuss initiatives, where and how ministries dovetail, and maintain a mutually accountable mindset. Ministers, elders and deacons are regularly consulted at these meetings.



HOW TO GET INVOLVED:

There is place for all christians to be involved in our church. Read the description of each ministry and volunteer where you wish to serve. 

Contact the ministry facilitator for guidance.

Our passion is to engage those seeking a meaning and significance in life, by serving an awesome God, and being part of His plan for our world.
