Adjutant Ministry

PROFILE
The word adjutant, which comes from the Latin word “adjustare,” meaning to aid or assist, is defined as a military officer who is an administrative assistant to a commander; an aide, helping hand, a right hand man.
 
The Adjutant Ministry is a service ministry of our church with the Pastor serving as commander. Only those who have the mind set of a servant can serve effectively. He must have a servant’s heart and a serving spirit.
 
Members of the Adjutancy are:
– Servants of God
– Servants of God’s people
– Servants of God’s leaders
 
 
The Adjutant Ministry is for people of humility, with a special dedication, and a mind to serve. The adjutant serves with no thought of recompense in word or deed.


Hospitality Ministry

Hospitality is the gracious provision of food and lodging to strangers. Kindness toward travelers and strangers was encouraged in both the Old and New Testament times.

 

 
Background Scripture: Romans 12:13
Distributing to the necessity of the saints;
given to hospitality

 

 

Hospitality is a ministry of service

 

A servant is one who serves others;

any person under the authority of another.

 

Background Scripture: Psalms 113:1

Praise ye the Lord.

Praise, O ye servants of the Lord,

praise the name of the Lord

 

 

The Hospitality Auxiliary is a group comprised of both males and females to show kindness in entertaining strangers, visitors and special guests and is vital to any church.

 

The hospitality auxiliary should consist of people who are lovers of the Lord and people, given to hospitality, saved, and who enjoy making others happy through the giving of gifts, preparing dinners, entertaining guests at nice eating places, etc.

 

Beautiful hands are they that do

Deeds that are noble, good and true;

Beautiful feet are they that go

Swiftly to lighten another’s woe.

  • Mc Guffey –

 

Romans 10:15

. . . as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that

Preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

 

 



Usher Board

Purpose and Goals

The Reed’s Temple Church of God in Christ Ushers are committed to providing services and keeping order in the House of Prayer.

Ushers must be willing to hear, to do and receive instruction, remembering that the Pastor has the final word.

Ushers should be saved and filled with the Holy Ghost or if you have not yet received it, seeking wholeheartedly.

Ushers should know the doctrine of his/her church. It is necessary that Ushers know them and always remember that the Pastor instructs all ushers. Ushers must follow the doctrine and assist the Pastor in the ministry. Ushers should see that nothing disturbs the service while the Pastor ministers the word of God.

After the minister has taken his place behind the pulpit to deliver the message, there should be quietness from the ushers and the congregation. No unnecessary talking or walking should be taking place at this time.

Always pray that some sinner will hear the word and receive Jesus as his personal savior.

Ushers should read their Bible daily. 2 Timothy 2:15 states “…study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” Search the scripture daily for out of them we are expecting eternal life. Ushers will receive wisdom, understanding, love and peace and grow in spiritual strength.

An Usher that is a Christian will be obedient to leadership. Ushers are to obey those that have authority over them. Ushers should have confidence in that he/she is qualified to do the work. Ushers should be a good listeners. Obedient ushers are needed in the church. Romans 5:19 says, “for as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be righteous.”



Pastor’s Aide Ministry

The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed; feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; neither as being lords over God’s heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

I Peter 5:1-4

Music Ministry

 


P.E.A.C.E. Unit

(P.E.A.C.E stands for Prayer, Encouragement, Assistance, Confidentiality and Empowerment)

The P.E.A.C.E Unit was developed and implemented in 2003, as a component of the Deaconess Board, to meet the natural and spiritual needs of the women of Reed’s Temple Church. This is being accomplished by providing a confidential setting where discussion of a variety of topics can be held in a group format on a monthly basis. There is a presenter of a chosen topic and then a group discussion is facilitated to generate assistance in the area of answers, encouragement and understanding. There is a component that provides individual sessions for those who need it. This is crisis based and therefore consists of approximately 4 weeks of one-on-one counseling. However, more time is provided if necessary.

 

As a Deaconess, it is optional for you to participate in this unit. Currently, there are six committee members that consist of both Deaconess and Non-Deaconess women.



Men’s Ministry

 


Youth Ministry

The goal of the Reed’s Temple Youth Department is to see our children disciplined in the Word of God, experience the power and anointing of God among their peers, and to equip them to minister in the power of the Holy Ghost.

 

We want to minister to children on their level and in a way that satisfies their needs mentally, emotionally, and socially. We want to meet their needs spiritually. It is our desire to assist, but not to replace, the family in guiding our young people as they mature in Christ, so they may become productive instruments, fit for the Master’s use, and be witnesses to tell of the goodness of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.



Deacons

Description:

1 Timothy 3:8-10, 11-12 states that “the deacons must be grave, not doubled tongued, not given to wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience, and let these also first be proved; then let them me the office of a deacon, being found blameless. Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well,… purchase to themselves a good degree and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus.”

 

Duties:

If the prosperity of the church is in any degree, dependent on the prompt and effectual performances of the duties belonging to the deaconship, those who are appended to that office must know what those duties are. It is their nature, extent, and obligation. For all practical ends, we should as well be without deacons, as to have those who are ignorant, incompetent, or unfaithful. They are not only useless, but also hurtful to the church.

Duties of the deacons are also to:

  • Maintain the up keep of the church (empty garbage, change light bulbs, pull weeds, clean up, free debris, etc.)
  • Prepare sanctuary for service at any given time
  • Assist with communion
  • Collect all offering and tithes
  • Solve minor problems before reaching the pastor’s desk
  • Lead by example
  • Follow leadership
  • Pray for those who need it
  • Prevent as much unwanted stress on the pastor as possible.

 

Uniform:

All deacons should follow the leadership of our Shepherd and should always wear a shirt and tie when there is church service (Sunday, Tuesday and Friday)
