Updates from the Community Formation Team

Updates from the Community Formation Team

The Community Formation Team (CFT) exists to equip CGS to form healthy, gospel-rooted, redemptive relationships that flow into a beautiful, loving culture where we invite our friends and neighbors into our family.

The CFT meets about once a month and oversees the Community Group ministry, the Party Planning Committee, the Young Adult Community, the College ministry, the Welcome Team, and the newly-implemented Neighborhood model for pastoral care.

The Formation Team model, which the Session rolled out in spring of 2018, continues to grow, and the CFT met on May 6 to chart a course for the rest of the year.  Each elder on the team will carry the rhythm of love in fellowship to one of the aforementioned ministries.

The current members of the Community Formation Team are:

  • Josh Briscoe (Ruling Elder, Northeast Neighborhood)
  • Mike Shipley (Ruling Elder, Central Neighborhood)
  • Ray Toher (Ruling Elder, Northeast Neighborhood)
  • Mark Whipple (Teaching Elder, Central Neighborhood)

Please continue in prayer for us.

CGS Elders

The Session is the group of elders called to care for, serve, equip, and oversee a local Presbyterian congregation. We meet on the first Monday of each month to pray, discuss the ministries of the church, and encourage and sharpen one another.
