Philosophy of Ministry





The foundation for effective ministry is given in 1 Peter 5:5-14. This text outlines four responsibilities for ministry staff:


  • Ministry: Shepherd those who are under your care. Your relationship and commitment to people is your primary responsibility.
  • Management: Serve as an overseer. Your relationship and commitment to people is your primary responsibility.
  • Modelling: Be an example to those under your care and your credibility. Model a commitment to the vision, values and mission of First Alliance Church. Support the church as a participating member.
  • Motive: Not greedy or motivated from compulsion, eager to serve with the right attitude and for the right reasons.




    The primary task of a ministry staff person is meet the goals of the church by recruiting, training, and assisting volunteers (lay leaders) to develop and implement effect church ministries. Ministry staff is committed to building lives that honour God. To accomplish this purpose, ministry activities are focused on our five biblically-based lifemarks aimed to build lives that:



  • HONOUR: We will create environments where personal and corporate expressions of devotion to Christ are natural and normal.
  • CONNECT: We will create environments where connection to Christ and His body are natural, intentional and authentic.
  • SERVE: We will create environments and provide opportunities for each person to discover and use their God-given abilities for His glory.
  • GROW: We will create contagious environments where growing into Christ-likeness is natural, normal and expected.
  • SHARE: We will create environments and provide opportunities where sharing the love of Christ is natural and normal both locally and around the world. We will willingly share our resources, experiences and giftedness to train and encourage people whose intent is sharing the love of God.
