About Congregational Spirituality

Elder – Rev. B.J. Stancel

The Ministry of Congregational Spirituality includes everything that we do as a congregation to lead the members to discover, develop, and cultivate a lasting and vital relationship with Jesus Christ. We believe that spiritual formation is vital to the life of the believer and the congregation. Spirituality is the means by which we are formed into the very image and likeness of Jesus Christ. Through our Ministry of Congregational Spirituality, we seek to intentionally empower the saints for the work of ministry, motivate them to reach for a godly lifestyle, and a deep and sincere commitment of Jesus Christ. Our focus is upon teaching and modeling the classical disciplines of the spiritual life, i.e., fasting, prayer, Bible reading, meditation, service, giving, obedience, submission, worship, fellowship, and listening to the Holy Spirit.
