Break Through Prayer: Gracious God, we pray for the Holy Spirit to breakthrough and renew Messiah Church, unleashing a fearless, Spirit-led congregation! Empower our pastors, leaders, and everyone who walks through our doors with the contagious, miraculous, saving message of Jesus. Boldly use each of us, without limits to reach new people and heal a broken world. Create in us a joyful heart for all that God is doing in and through us to change lives and transform the world. We pray in the precious and powerful name of Jesus. Amen.

The Servant Steering Team will be responsible for protecting and championing the vision and values of Messiah Church. Its foci will be:

Apostolic: outwardly focused Discipleship: spiritual growth

Accountability: How will we measure fruitfulness? Fiscal and facility responsibility

The Servant Steering Team consists of the pastors and 10 lay members (non-staff) of Messiah Church. Of these 10, two have a specific role related to Staff-Parish Relations, two relate to Trustee matters, two relate to Finance matters, and of the four additional “at large” members at least one person is over the age of 65 and another under the age of 40.
