AT DIVERGENT CHURCH
It might sound obvious but we want God to lead DIVERGENT CHURCH, we desire to be a Spirit led community, founded on God's Word and focused on Jesus. Such a statement can sound somewhat a given but that stated reality shapes our understanding and direction as a Church.
Our key leadership team positions are those who shoulder the primary responsibility to seek God, to understand where he is leading us and to help bring the whole community on that journey.
SENIOR LEADERSHIP Team
At DIVERGENT CHURCH we call our 'Overseers' the Senior Leadership team and it is made up of our Senior Leader - Josh, the Gathering Pastors and Focus Team Leaders. This team also serves to oversight our 'Expand' Focus.
Pastoral Ministry Leaders (Establish)
The Pastoral Ministry Leaders will be listed here soon. The role of the Pastoral Ministry Leadership Team is to care for our community and create and maintain initiatives that reinfoce this aim. Read about some of the team at DIVERGENT CHURCH Canberra & Queanbeyan at our Leaders BIO's Page
// TEAM LEADERSHIP
Leadership is not something carried alone and a narrow focus on a specific Leadership Gifting is also ultimately not healthy for the Church. Divergent Church also does not see itself simply a single cell community but rather one that is called to rise as a movement of communities and believers engaged with the called of God in every context of their lives. This environment and belief spurs us to see a Church that multiples and diversifies it's leadership giftings and strength.
// GATHERING LEADERSHIP
Our specific Sunday Gatherings are lead by different local Pastors and teams, our heart is that our unified strength can enable us to diversify and extend the kingdom.
// EVERY BELIEVER IS A MINISTER
The key role of Leadership scripturally is not to be 'ministers' to a group of spectators but rather equippers of the saints for ministry (Eph 4:11 - 12) releasing each person and the community into God's design for our lives individually and as a community. DIVERGENT CHURCH has a limited 'paid Church staff' but has a community of ministers (some of whom are specifically leaders) that are called to bring the Gospel to a world without the Saviour.
We invite you to check out DIVERGENT CHURCH, find out if you are called to this community and call and step into the unique role that God has called you to.
