F A Q
Q: What is Messenger Fellowship?
A: Messenger Fellowship is a safe place for leaders who love the ways of God. It is a community of Christian ministry and marketplace leaders who are committed to common core values and relational leadership, who desire to experience God’s presence and advance His Kingdom in the earth.
Q: What does Messenger actually “do”?
A: Messenger’s activities broadly consist of three areas: Covering, Convening and Co-missioning. Because we are a fellowship, these expressions, while consistently value-based, are fluid in their structure. Convening takes place in a variety of ways. We have regional gatherings and an annual conference or leadership summit. Covering occurs formally through Ordination and LIcensing, and informally through relationships and resources. Co-missioning takes place when Messenger Associates partner together in various projects and outreaches. These are not dictated by a central office, but born out of relationship and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Q: What is Messenger’s Theology?
A. We affirm the content of the Apostle’s and Nicene Creeds and the Lausanne Statement of Faith. We focus on the Kingdom of God proclaimed by Jesus Christ and the values of the Kingdom found in the Scriptures.
