Thank you for your interest in connecting at Eastridge and becoming a Ministry Partner.
Many churches call their committed church-goers “Members.” But membership implies a certain set of rights and privileges. We believe that the Body of Christ is made up of many parts, all of which are equally important. The church is not a country club, rather it is a group of believers who are partnering together to fulfill the Great Commission of Jesus:
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. (Matthew 28:19-20)
So, Eastridge prefers the phrase, “Ministry Partner” instead of Member. Ministry Partnership includes attending, serving, giving and participating in biblical community. This journey begins at Starting Point.
We offer monthly Starting Point classes where you'll learn the vision and values of Eastridge. This two-and-a-half hour class will introduce you to several ministry leaders and give you the chance to dialogue with each one. There will be plenty of time for questions, too. We will discuss what a disciple looks like and some steps to growing in your faith. And at the end of the class you'll have an opportunity to become a Ministry Partner with Eastridge Community Church.
