God appoints, anoints and approves individuals to serve in various capacities in the church. He equips church leaders, governmental leaders and lay persons with compassionate hearts and kingdom leadership skills which combine for effective and practical ministry.
Plurality of Leadership
The administration of the Potter's Gate Ministries at the international level is under the supervision of the General Superintendent, Assistant General Superintendent, General Secretary, General Treasurer, Executive Director of World Missions Executive Presbytery Executive Leadership Team, and councilors constituting the International Executive Council of the Ministry.
Potter’s Gate ministries strongly believes in the invariably plurality of leadership and the five-fold equipping and/or governmental ministries under the Lordship of Jesus Christ and therefore all government has its final authority in Him the source of all rule, the ultimate governor of the church.
Companionship Through Association
The leadership of Potter’s Gate ministries believes in fellowship and cooperation with other churches, continuing effort to break the barriers that separate one church from another and most of all, participating in every possible way in the fulfillment of Christ’s prayer that “they may all be one."
Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one.” ... (John 17:20-22)
The International Executive Committee is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the ministry. These leaders are prayerfully appointed at the General Assembly, a gathering of the ministerial staff and laity meeting for business, worship and fellowship. The District superintendent provides leadership at the district or regional level and local pastors are appointed in consultation and prayer with the local church.
