Ministry Areas & Leaders

Here at East Point, we use a ministry system to help us organize our ministry efforts. This system is overseen by our shepherds and is organized by our ministry leaders. Most of these ministry leaders have been chosen by the church to serve as deacons. We are grateful for the servant leadership displayed by all who serve. All ministry leaders are responsible for including other church members in their ministry areas. But in order to be included, members need to volunteer for the ministries which God has equipped them to perform. Members may volunteer for service by calling the appropriate ministry leaders listed in this booklet or by filling out a East Point Member’s Ministry Form. Listed below are the areas of ministry and leaders.

Missions

The East Point Missions program has God breathed and inspired work for just about everyone. From loading containers and collecting school books going to Zimbabwe to the Nhowe Mission and the Nhowe Mission Christian School, or supporting one or more orphans in Zimbabwe, or in Zambia where our own Meagan Hawley cares for orphans with serious and terminal illnesses; or working on housing for the poor on the Tex-Mex border and teaching the ladies to sew; the list goes on. The hospital at Nhowe is serving 3,000 to 5,000 patients per month, and we need your financial help to keep it supplied with medicines and staffed with doctors and essential personnel to keep the hospital working. The hospital has a great reputation in Zimbabwe and is considered one of the best, if not the best. Our church of Christ chaplain is on duty daily to speak and pray for those in need and study with them. We are called to serve others and glorify God in all that we do. We take our mission work seriously and ask that you come and join us in His service.
