Lunch with Candidates & Wives
Sunday September 30th
@ Paul & Susan’s

Candidates & wives please join us for lunch after the service for a time of fellowship together! We will take some time to discuss the importance of healthy leadership structures and then we will close our time together with a time of prayer for the church and the city.

Our Leadership Discussion: Sadly, due to both scandals and unhealthy leadership structures, many people outside the church are skeptical of the organized church and many inside the church are hesitant to commit to the community of church.

We endeavour, by God’s grace, to be a church eldership that serves KW Redeemer with integrity and be an eldership that relates to one another with open, honest, loving accountability. Candidates and wives, please read Chuck Degoat’s article on the importance of healthy leadership structures. Chuck is Professor of Pastoral Care and Christian Spirituality at Western Theological Seminary and wrote this in response to the #MeToo, #ChurchToo movement, provoking church leaders to examine their own hearts and church structures in an effort to pastor well.
