Why We Exist
Stonewater Fellowship is a people gathering in authentic relationship for real purpose. The “real purpose” is to bring glory to God by engaging all people to become multiplying disciples of Jesus Christ. This statement helps define and direct all of our ministry efforts and keeps us on THE mission Jesus ordained His church to accomplish. Discipleship is an intentional and relational process by which God equips and mobilizes people to His Kingdom work. As we engage in making disciples, our hope is to make more disciples of Jesus – Disciples who multiply into disciples who make more disciples. A disciple is someone intentionally becoming more like Jesus in character, conduct, and priorities. And so Stonewater Fellowship’s ministry model is simple:
We engage all people into becoming multiplying disciples of Jesus in everything we do.
What We Do
Our hope for people who call Stonewater Fellowship their church home is that they would glorify God in all aspects of their lives by engaging in making disciples. To that end, we ask all partners to worship regularly, to live in authentic accountable community, and to give their lives as an offering of service in discipleship.
How We Are Structured
Stonewater Fellowship is an elder-led church. Currently our elder board is comprised of a Partnership Advisory Team. These men are responsible for the protection of doctrine, the vision and direction of the church. Once elders are elected from our body all of our elders will be participants in our Growth Group or Community Group discipleship as well as actively engaged in 1-on-1 disciple-making relationships. Our church staff, under the authority of the Lead Pastor, is and will be responsible for implementing Stonewater’s disciple making vision and participating in group and 1-on-1 disciple-making relationships as well.
