The Discipleship Committee Mandate:
…to oversee the Christian nurture of children, youth, and adults, so that all are equipped to live the Christian life.
If it is clearly within the mandate of the committee, creative suggestions for new emerging discipleship ministries should be encouraged.
We are pleased to announce that after a fairly long search, following the death last year of Pat Stinson, the Session has appointed Mike Neels as part-time Director of Discipleship. He begins on March 1. Mike, whom you may know as ‘Malachi’s Dad’, has attended Knox for the past couple of years with his wife Immaculata, and children Malachi and Ivana. Last year, Mike worked part-time for Queen St. Baptist Church in Outreach Ministry. However, as a full-time cabinet-maker in Burlington, who is finishing up a B.A. degree, and has a young family, Mike found himself unable to give the hours to Queen St. that they required. We’re glad, however, that he’s willing to take on oversight of Knox’s Kid Zone, Youth Group, and Home Groups. Mike will be formally welcomed to his position on Sunday, March 10.
