Leadership is all about changing your environment and that's exactly what Christians do - we influence our culture to be a reflection of the Kingdom of God.
The first step of leadership is being a good follower. That's why we think every follower of Christ already occupies a leadership role. By submitting to the Lordship of Jesus, a person becomes a leader for the Kingdom. God created every member of the church body to fulfill significant roles in ministry. Through a shared leadership structure of staff, leadership board, and deacons, we work toward fully equipping the church body to fulfill its mission.
Here at Park Street, we believe that God created every member of the church body to fulfill a significant role in reaching our community (and our world) for Christ. Members of the Leadership Board serve as ministry leaders and at-large members who make critical decisions for the oversight and effective working of the congregation. These individuals are elected volunteers who serve our church community as representatives in the oversight of the church's ministry.
Park Street Staff
It's wonderful to have people who have a capacity to dream about the future and manage the systems required to make the church function. Something else that a church needs to thrive is men and women who know how to get things done. Our paid and unpaid staff works with our volunteer church members to ensure the ministry of Park Street happens! They are the tangible hands and feet of Christ in our community.
Park Street deacons are spiritual guides and equippers for the congregation, providing discernment and care to aid in the spiritual health of the church. They are elected volunteers serving as spiritual caretakers and nurturers and their ministry is rooted in passages like John 20:17 when Jesus instructed the Apostle Peter to "feed my sheep," and 2 Peter 1:3-11 where believers are invited to make every effort to add to their faith.
