Leader: Chris Pompey –

Responsibility of leader: Care for the Congregation.

The Congregation Stage consists of individuals who have made a commitment to partner [individuals who are actively involved in helping us accomplish the vision and mission God has given us] with Trenches by completing new members class, being involved in a ministry, participating in small groups, and worshipping God through giving (Matthew 6:19-21). Giving is a good sign, not the only sign, of an individual’s commitment to anything, including advancing and investing in the work of God.
