The Mission Statement

The Ministerial Department exists to enable, ennoble and enhance Pastors of the Northeastern Conference to perform their ministerial duties with proficiency and efficiency; and to enjoy healthy and wholesome experiences in their personal, professional and family relationships.

The NEC Health and Safety Guidelines for Churches

The Covid-19 Pandemic has reminded us that we are living in prophetic times. End-time events will change the landscape and context within which we worship and minister, however, worship is not an event, activity or program. Worship is a lifestyle, the product of a relationship with Christ, as we have experienced, Church can continue without walls.

During this period we see that God has been using the gifts of those who would allow themselves to be used by Him to minister and share the everlasting gospel. Jesus had told us that … “the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.”

Worship is what comes from the relationship we have with the Son, and our willingness to be used by the Holy Spirit. The guidelines provided in this document are not intended to limit or stifle worship expressions, but instead, are intended to establish a system that provides safety for our members.
