My goal in presenting my curriculum vitae is to determine if or whether the episcopal journey is related to my call from God to shepherd His church in a broader spectrum. I do believe that Episcopal leadership is relatively a divine calling.

MY VISION

Vision: I see people called UMC create a movement of disciple-making disciples to impact Church growth (Qualitatively and Quantatively).

Rationale: Church growth is the heartbeat of Jesus and the spirit of Acts 2; therefore, it should be top priority to His church. 

Mission: We are committed to connect people to Jesus and each other, develop them to Christ like maturity, and equip them for their ministry in the church and life mission in the
world, in order to magnify God’s name.

To fulfill this vision and mission we need to create a community of:

1. BELONGING CHURCH

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.’ (Galatians 3:28)
a) We seek to be a welcoming and caring church community where all people are included and encouraged to feel the love of God.
b) Welcoming new members to our church and our faith through lively inclusive worship, enhanced lay leadership and active community connections.
c) Affirm our commitment to being a multicultural and cross-cultural community. As God’s diverse people, united in Christ, we embrace the vision of being a Church for all God’s People, while ensuring our Christian distinctiveness.

2. GROWING CHURCH

‘Just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing thankfulness.’ (Colossians 2:8)
a) We seek to encourage wholehearted commitment to living relationships with Jesus through prayer, engagement with the Bible and the infilling of the Holy Spirit
a) Every local church must have a disciple-making ministry.
b) Equipping all church members in their Christian discipleship through biblical teaching, junior and youth church and prayer ministry.
c) Addressing the needs of our children, young people and family wellbeing.
d) Improve our financial situation and encourage greater community support through tithing.

3. SERVING CHURCH

‘For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works.’ (Ephesians 2:10)
a) We seek to be a community where the gifts and abilities given to all by the Holy Spirit are recognized and used.
b) Developing the talents of church members to encourage greater levels of leadership and volunteering in church and community.
c) Working for community enhancement and social interrelation through social justice and advocacy campaigns focused upon local needs.

4. TELLING CHURCH

‘Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have
commanded you’. (Matthew 28:19-20)
a) We seek to enable everyone everywhere to proclaim the Good News of Jesus in word and action.
b) Train and equip our workers and lay people in doing mission in digital space.
c) Train and equip our OFW members to create discipleship groups, organize Worshipping Congregation, lead Bible study, lead worship, and preach the gospel.

What God expects of us in fulfilling the Great Commission is more clearly detailed in the closing words of Matthew, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing
them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20)

Three of the action verbs in this statement are: go, baptize, and teach. The one imperative is make disciples. This is God’s expectations for those of us who are His followers today: to
see that every possible lost person in the world becomes a disciple of Jesus Christ.


TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY!
