At Stonegate, our leadership structure is built around five distinct characteristics. We believe the first three of these characteristics are non-negotiable and essential characteristics that describe church leadership in the New Testament. The final two are characteristics specific to Stonegate Fellowship but that our elders have put in place to align with our distinct ministry vision, values, and mission.
At Stonegate Fellowship we believe Jesus is our Senior Pastor, because He is the head of the church. We want everything we do to be in humble submission to His leadership, for the purpose of magnifying His Gospel, and with the vision to advance His Kingdom.
We believe the Spirit of Jesus is the empowering presence of God among His people. Humble dependence upon the Spirit’s guidance and gifting is, therefore, essential to how we seek to shepherd the people of Stonegate Fellowship.
Throughout the New Testament, God has revealed a model of church leadership that consists of a plurality of qualified men known as elders. These men are under-shephards of Jesus who provide the spiritual oversight, protection, and direction for the church.
