As the pastor it is my responsibility to articulate and communicate God's intention (purpose) and invitation for Breckenridge Chapel, Free Methodist Church. God has a purpose or intention for Breckenridge Chapel to fulfill with Him. God invites Breckenridge Chapel to join Him in accomplishing His work.
Though the pastor has the primary responsibility to articulate and communicate what could be called God's vision for the church family, it is important that all members of the church be participants in the processs of understanding what that vision is. It is also important that all members be active "owners" of this vision. I shall continue to develop ways by which members may be meaningfully engaged in hearing God's invitation.
