In this final video, Eric and Julia draw your attention back to the leadership commitments laid out across these videos. As you hear the list of commitments required for leadership in Vineyard Columbus, prepare yourself to answer for each of them. If there’s an area where you disagree or feel you wish to discuss it more, be sure to note it next to that area on the leadership commitment form. At Vineyard Columbus, our leaders are committed to walking through areas of difference, and one of our leaders will follow up to connect with you and discuss your reservations. Leadership is a commitment to serving God’s kingdom through the local expression of Vineyard Columbus, and we want to make sure all our leaders are unified in these critical areas of our ministry.
You’ve made it through the course, and you’ve heard a lot about our distinctives, convictions, and postures as a church. You were invited to this course because someone saw God at work in in your life in a way that was attractive and reminded them of Jesus. Now it’s time to consider carefully and respond to the commitments Vineyard Columbus invites leaders to and requires for leading in any area of the ministry of the church. If you do not feel like you can support one of the commitments on this list at this point, that’s okay – please be honest. One of our leaders would love to hear your objections or questions and to have a conversation with you. By noting a commitment that you cannot fully support right now, our leadership takes that as integrity on your part and an opportunity for discussion. It should not make you feel initially disqualified from leadership. When you have filled out a response to each commitment, click submit at the bottom of the form.
