The elders of Grace Christian Church desire to live out, with the help of the Godhead, several portions of Scripture that pertain to our ministry. Here are a few passages that inform our prayers:

'you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength [resources]. The second is this, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself"...shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness; nor yet as lording it over those allotted to your charge, but proving to be examples to the flock.... we proved to be gentle among you, as a nursing mother tenderly cares for her own children. Having so fond an affection for you, we were well-pleased to impart to you not only the gospel of God but also our own lives, because you had become very dear to us...just as you know how we were exhorting and encouraging and imploring each one of you as a father would his own children, so that you would walk in a manner worthy of the God who calls you into His own kingdom and glory...For if you were to have countless tutors in Christ, yet you would not have many fathers, for in Christ Jesus I became your father through the gospel' (Mark 12:30-31; 1 Pet. 5:2-3; 1 Thess. 2:7-8, 11-12; 1 Cor. 4:15).
