Bering Drive Church of Christ recognizes the special need for a variety of pastoral approaches to serve our church family. In partnership with the Staff and Administrative Teams, these special servants lead our congregation spiritually.
Members of the Pastoral Team have the specific ministry of mentoring, setting an example, encouraging, teaching, and leading. Most importantly, they are present for the church, and for those who seek.
With this in mind, we have selected six men and women to fulfill the roles on the Pastoral Team among the church body. Each Pastoral Team member agrees to serve for six years, after which they rotate off for a time of sabbatical. It is not uncommon for some Pastoral Team members to then serve again if the church affirms them to serve.
The Pastoral Team is always available to our church family. They meet regularly to pray for Bering and God’s purposes in our life together.
