Powerhouse speaks out
Keeping it Real
Here are a few of the topics we studied this year. The book of Luke took us 9 MONTHS, but we were able to finally complete it! We studied the 'Gospel Centered Life' series in our homegroups, and have completed that as well.
We also had 'Scripture Sculpture' classes, where a few of us studied the book 'Preparing expository Sermons' by Dr. Ramesh Richard, among other things. This class took us around 2 months to complete.
Something that was important for us to do this year was to re-structure ourselves a little bit, as we released Kavitha & Jeyakaran (our founding pastors) to step forward in the ministry that they are being called to. They are still very much a part of church and the leadership, but may not be as hands-on as before.
We have an eldership team(decides on matters such as doctrines, vision, church discipline etc.), a ministry team (planning events etc.), as well as functional teams (practical planning) and leaders.
We look forward to this new year with excitement! This year we are introducing short term ministry internship programmes to build and equip people to understand their role in the church and be effective disciples of Jesus. Age and gender no bar ! We also plan to have a structured learning forum for our present and future leaders - where we can do intensive courses on relevant and radical teaching - based completely on the Bible.
We have some exciting new ideas and plans for outreaches, etc for the coming year, and can't wait to share them with you. Please do stay connected as we update you throughout the year. We miss all of you who have moved to other cities and countries! We would love to stay in touch with you - you will always be a part of Powerhouse.
