And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age. — MATTHEW 28:18-20
Passing the Baton is a great way to describe the part of our DNA that is about Discipleship—we are engaged in the constant motion of being sent out, lovingly and authentically handing off the truth of gospel to others, and empowering growth.
We are committed to nurturing people at all levels of spiritual maturity. We make a significant investment in Children and Youth as well as developing leaders through our 18 month internship program. Not to mention our work with women, men, and young adults.
Our success in Passing the Baton is not measured by how great the pastor is or any other leader—but on how well leadership is being handed off to the members of the body who are employing the gifts they have been given to BE the church.
