servant leadership

Servant leadership is not just about filling a ministry need.  It's about developing the gifts and passions God has placed within each of us to build up the body of Christ and effectively minister to those who don't yet know Him as Lord and Savior. Ephesians 4:11-13 says, "Christ chose some of us to be apostles, prophets, missionaries, pastors, and teachers,so that his people would learn to serve and his body would grow strong. This will continue until we are united by our faith and by our understanding of the Son of God. Then we will be mature, just as Christ is, and we will be completely like him." (CEV) Servant leadership isn't just teaching a Sunday morning class or welcoming a new guest wth a smile - it's how we grow independently and corporately into the image of Christ.

At FOL, we have a group of incredible people that have discovered their gifts and passions and are actively serving in them. From creating a comfortable environment by serving on the First Touch Team, to guiding the next generation to follow Jesus by serving in children's ministries, to crafting a dynamic experience with the Service Production Team, to building community and relationships through leading a Life Group- we are a group that has a passion for building the Kingdom of God!  Check out our Discovery Class every 2nd Sunday of the month immediately following the main service to discover your God-given gifts and passions along with the many opportunities for you to serve and grow at FOL.
