We wholeheartedly believe in the priesthood of all believers – every follower of Jesus is a minister. At the same time, Rhythm does have a few layers of designated leadership that work together to create a healthy and vibrant community life.
The purpose of these leaders is not to do all the ministry of the church, but rather to “equip God’s people” so that the entire congregation might do God’s ministry. The ultimate goal is for the congregation to be fully healthy and growing in Jesus – what Paul calls “the fullness of Christ” in Ephesians 4.
The daily ministry and community life of Rhythm is overseen by a team of pastors and staff. This team works to equip the church to participate in God’s mission together.
Rhythm is led and shepherded by the Guidance Team. The Guidance Team provides spiritual guidance, organizational oversight, theological direction, prayer, and cultivation of our unique vision. This team keeps Rhythm following Christ, living out the values of the kingdom, and led by the Spirit.
The Ecclesia Network is a growing relational network of churches, leaders, and movements who seek to partner, equip, and multiply other churches. Rhythm has been an active member of Ecclesia since 2011. You can read more about the network and see other churches that are part of this network at ecclesianet.org.
