Pray for Piedmont Church’s Staff and Elders
David assembled at Jerusalem all the officials of Israel, the officials of the tribes, the officers of the divisions that served the king, the commanders of thousands, the commanders of hundreds, the stewards of all the property and livestock of the king and his sons, together with the palace officials, the mighty men and all the seasoned warriors.
1 Chronicles 28:1
We thank God for our staff and elders. They are the ones called to watch over our souls, provide directional oversight, guard the sheep, and equip the saints for ministry.
When you study the Bible, the type of leader God uses the most have two common characteristics – first, humility which flows from brokenness and second, an uncommon communion and daily walk with God. We pray for our staff and leaders to have humility and brokenness. Brokenness will display itself by an understanding that everything good at Piedmont Church is not because of our efforts, intellect, connections, location or financial resources. Everything good at Piedmont Church takes place strictly because of the grace and goodness of our loving Heavenly Father Jesus Christ.
An uncommon communion with God displays itself by staff and elders who prioritize personal holiness over personal freedoms. People with an uncommon communion are people of prayer, biblical study, and an active and acute responsiveness to a moving of the Spirit. They can hear the voice of God and then the obedience to do what He says.
We thank God for our staff and elders and pray their leadership is never more obvious and on display than when leading Piedmont Church in this Beyond Limits initiative.
