Leaders Equipped to Bless through Service
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. (1Cor. 12:4-7)
The Fanwood Presbyterian Church is filled with servant leaders who recognize that Christ alone is head of the church. Everyone is understood to be gifted by the Spirit and called to lead according to those gifts in a priesthood of all believers. We fill out a Talent Pledge sheet during the stewardship campaign so that everyone might find a ministry which suits their gifts and is thus fulfilling.
The nominating committee is charged with nominating elders who seek God's vision for the church, deacons who serve those in distress, and trustees who care for the building and grounds. Church committees and mission teams are also responsible for both discernment and carrying out God's good work in our communities. Learn more about those boards, committees and teams throughout the website.
