One of the greatest joys for me as a pastor is to serve alongside men and women who are both gifted and willing to use their time and talents to make a difference. Leading a Worship & Creative Arts Ministry is a humbling responsibility as it allows me to see selflessness in action every week.
No greater example was this week as our hard working team members volunteered dozens of hours to rehearse, set up and pack down gear as Northside hosted the Global Leadership Summit. These individuals worked tirelessly, not for their glory but entirely to bless others.
These “others” mostly consisted of people they have never met and most likely never will again. An almost thankless task of working all day, then turning up night after night (some nights this week burning the midnight oil) to rehearse and prepare for the Summit is no small ask. Yet, these folks served our church so admirably this weekend – many of them behind the tech desk today or on stage using their musical gifts.
It never ceases to amaze me how blessed we are at Northside to see both character and gifting in action. People who are highly capable, yet willing to serve so faithfully behind the scenes, for no reward or recognition other than to honour God and support our church.
A huge thank you to all our volunteers who helped make GLS such a success this weekend. It was a monumental task which truly displayed faithfulness in action…
