As the Renewal Leadership Team, we have felt God leading us to follow Paul’s example in the New Testament where he engaged himself in tent making efforts in order to not place a financial burden on the church to support him. In our context we have felt lead by God to do the same. Each Team member is self-supported and serves on the team as their way of offering their Gift of Leadership back to God. Here is a little more about each one:
