In a larger church, one of the keys to long-term health and vitality is the leadership of a gifted and effective ministry staff in partnership with church members who are fully devoted followers of Christ.
Under my overall direction, our Ingleside staff is led on a day-by-day basis by our Executive Pastor, Andy Johnson, and is currently organized into four teams: (1) the Worship Arts Team; (2) the Next Generation Team; (3) the Disciple-Making Team; and (4) the Operations Team. I want you to know each of the team leaders and the scope of their responsibility.
Worship Arts Team. Led by our Worship Arts Pastor, Jonathan Green, this team is responsible for planning and leading each of our weekly worship services. This team also provides support and leadership for our outreach on WMAZ-TV as well as concerts and special services throughout the year.
Next Generation Team. Justin Nalls, our Middle School Pastor, leads this team and is responsible for our ministries to preschoolers, elementary-age children, middle school students, and high school students. In addition to regular Sunday and Wednesday programming, this team leads retreats, camps, and special events year round.
Disciple-Making Team. Led by David Peterson, our Discipleship Pastor, this team is responsible for adult discipleship and small groups, membership, missions, recreation ministries, and our bookstore and café. College and young adult ministries, men’s ministries, and women’s ministries are also led by this team.
Operations Team. Tim Newberry, our Chief Financial Officer, leads this team and is responsible for financial administration, information technology, property and grounds, insurance, legal and tax matters, human resources, and our food service ministry. In addition, this team is responsible for community event coordination and our auxiliary properties (shopping center and office park).
Of course, each of these leaders works with a gifted and dedicated team of staff members and volunteers who are committed to serving with excellence.
I am very grateful for these leaders and their teams. I know that you will join me in giving thanks to the Lord for them and praying the Lord’s favor and blessings as we stretch toward reaching our full redemptive potential. The best is yet to come!
Your Pastor and Friend,
