CWC SCHOOL OF MINISTRY. Promoting lifelong devotion to Christ and to others.
Ministry – diakonia – grk. to render assistance or help by performing certain duties, often of a humble or menial nature.
“And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God.” – Ephesians 4:11-13.
The body of Christ is made up of servants, not onlookers. We often experience isolation and discouragement when we are not regularly blessing others. God has called every one of us to be there for each other. He has blessed us with leaders, who teach us how to help one another in ways that honor God, and strengthen the members of the church. As our neighbors witness the love of God between us, they experience the love of God for themselves.
The disciples spent three years with Jesus being equipped to continue the ministry of Christ on the earth. He taught them, gave them the opportunity to teach and bless others, corrected them, and finally, commissioned them. That’s what our School of Ministry is all about.
In the School of Ministry, you will receive instruction regarding your life with Christ, your service to others, and living out your faith in the world at large. Challenged to apply what you learn as you serve the congregation, and commit yourself to daily prayer, you will grow closer to God and your brothers and sisters in Christ.
