Expectation One of Churches Who are Members or Connected with CMBA
The Visionary Leadership Community (formerly Administrative Team) of CMBA has been working on a set of expectations for member churches and church network connections. These have now been approved by the VLC and will be shared for affirmation with the Missional Leadership Community (formerly Executive Board) during their September 2019 meeting.
Each expectation also has a statement of what the ministry of CMBA — as our family of Baptist congregations in the Midlands — will seek to do to support each expectation and make them meaningful. Here is the first of five expectations. What is your reaction to this expectation?
Expectation One: Every church is expected to pray for and support the life and ministry of brother and sister congregations in the CMBA family of churches. Churches should celebrate with one another, challenge one another, mourn with one another, and show grace to one another.
- CMBA Commitment: We will regularly inform our member churches of prayer and support needs of their sister and brother churches.
