JONATAN MILES ORDINATION AND LORD'S SUPPER OBSERVANCE

Sunday, January 31 | 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM | Worship Center
Be a part of the Ordination of our Spiritual Formations Pastor, Jonatan Miles followed by a Lord's Supper Observance. Childcare will be available for birth through three years and the sign up deadline is midnight on Sunday, January 24.

An ordination service is the church’s way of setting apart a person for the Gospel Ministry. In both the Old Testament and New Testament leaders were ‘appointed’ or ‘set apart’ in a special way. Paul and Barnabas were set apart as missionaries by the church at Antioch (Acts 14:23). Ordination symbolizes God’s call to ministry, the candidate’s commitment of himself to the ministry in the will of God, and the church’s approval of the candidate for the ministry.
