The purpose of the Hospitality Team is to
provide through a gracious atmosphere, an opportunity for our
members and visitors to have relaxed yet serious fellowship
with the Holy Trinity while attending our services.
Primarily, Hospitality Teams free the Pastor
of the responsibility of having to greet the guests as they
arrive, so that he is able to be wrapped up in Jesus and the
word and flowing in the Spirit. As our Pastors are able to seriously
minister to persons, the body is most edified.
Another purpose is to raise up responsible
individuals who are trained in serving. Both experience and
confidence will be gained through the area of service. We also
expect to see management and leadership skills developed in
those involved, which can then be applied in other areas and
in their daily lives.
One of our primary goals at Mount of Praise
is to see servantsí hearts developed in those working on the
Hospitality teams. The development of interpersonal relationships
among those serving together is also of primary importance.
We desire to see each person develop an attitude of support
and service toward others on the team.
A strong spiritual purpose is also accomplished
through hospitality meals. When given natural responsibilities,
many Christ-like characteristics are tested. Those who prove
strong may be given additional responsibility. Often, problems
occur and weaknesses surface. Through the ministry of the leadership,
we seek to help correct the problems and strengthen the weak
areas that we all might go unto perfection in God.
