God builds HIS CHURCH through soul-winning and discipleship. Some plant and some water, but it is God who gives the increase. Leaders ministry opportunities to those who wish to serve. We are content to plant and water, encouraging the flock we are entrusted with, to move ever onward into God's will for their lives.
We do not become possessive of God's possession.
It is the Body of Christ (all believers), who are called to do the work of the ministry and that the ministry gifts of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers, are given to The Church in order to equip believers to join in the work of winning souls and making disciples (Ephesians 4:11-12).
We believe that leadership positions are never full; As our fellowships grow so does the need for leadership. Hungry Hearts Ministries continually mentors and trains leaders--face to face and with print and online resources (as long as that platform is available to Christians).
Hungry Hearts Ministries ordains leaders into our fellowships. This biblical. These include Evangelists, Pastors, Assistant, Associate, and teaching Pastors, Deacons, and Elders. We also work with other leaders in various areas of outreach who may or may not choose to be sent forth with the laying on of hands.
General (not comprehensive) requirements for leadership with our fellowships include:
- Agreement with our Statement of Faith and Vision: How can two walk together except they be agreed
- Commitment: If a leadership position is sought, then responsibility and commitment to that responsibility is required (It is required in stewards that they be found faithful)
- HHF's Leadership Training
