- The Foyer – (Guest)
It’s the place in your home that serves as the welcome area for guests and new friends. It’s the first step, and it’s often your only chance to make your guests feel comfortable enough to return. That’s exactly how we’ve designed our entry environments at Southpoint Church. Our Sunday worship services are “foyer” environments. We want our guests to come back, so we do everything with them in mind. These environments are where most people will experience Southpoint for the first time, and they serve as the perfect place to introduce newcomers to the life of our church.
- The Living Room – (Friends)
Once your guests arrive and are welcomed into your home, you invite them into the living room. Everyone finds a comfortable place to sit, and the interaction begins. This is where you connect with people like yourself. Smaller and more interactive than the foyer environment, this is a real-life, genuine opportunity to begin friendships just like you would in your home.
- The Kitchen – (Family)
What’s the most popular room in your house? Where do you end up when friends and family come over? That’s right. The kitchen. And that’s the kind of environment we’re striving for in our small groups: community groups and Starting Point. These groups consist of six to eight individuals or five to six couples who meet regularly for Bible study and prayer and commit to accountability, friendship, and support. This is a safe place to open your heart and share your feelings. It’s a safe place to ask tough questions. This is where lasting friendships are made. It’s about commitment and strength and security. And we want to help you get there.
- Leadership Team
- Finance & Personnel Team
The Finance and Personnel Team oversees all the financial and personnel matters. The Lead Pastor is accountable to the Finance and Personnel Team in all these matters, and along with the Church administrator attends the team’s meetings but without voting privileges. Finance and Personnel Team are appointed by the Elders.
The Leadership Team is appointed by the elders on recommendation of the lead pastor. The purpose of this group is to determine programming, give vision to the various ministries of the church, and to oversee the day-to-day operations.
Elders function primarily as discerners and shepherds and serve as the conscience and guardians of the church. Their role is to evaluate everything going on in the church in light of three things; our mission, our resources and our doctrinal statement. The Board of Elders consists of men who meet the qualifications of Elders/Overseers outlined in 1 Timothy 3:1-11 and Titus 1:5-9.
