our family structure
As a group of churches, we believe that it is the Lord who leads, through inspiration of the Holy spirit in individual lives. It tells us in 1 corinthians 12 that the Holy spirit designs that each of us be different and are called to do different things, with different levels of effectiveness. Finally, and most importantly, regardless of the type or size, even the effectiveness, of the ministry there is no one calling, ministry or person more important than any other to the function of the church.
As such the structure of each of our churches and the overall structure of the family of churches is for these purposes.
What this means in practice is that no one person has overall control of the organisation, other than the Lord. It also means the purpose isn’t to tell any person what to do but to make it possible for them to do whatever the good work the Lord has given them to do.
The only restrictions to this is the purpose of the GPC family at large. This purpose is to reach teach and keep men and women, boys and girls for the Lord Jesus Christ. Although there are many things we could do which would be good, only good works which are for these purposes are the ones which form part of our family.
To understand our structure and how we manage we’ve included a structure tree for you.
