THE COMMAND CENTER
The staff members of St. Michael’s Command Center are responsible for analyzing and monitoring events that impact our church members and community either positively or negatively.
Our team members are known to be active listeners, giving full attention to the needs of others. The Command Center takes the time to understand the perspectives of others by asking questions, as appropriate, and being courteous throughout this process. Ministry members are proficient in time management, critical thinking, and deductive reasoning. These are qualities that have contributed to the smooth operation of St. Michael’s. The book of Ephesians 4:16 says, “From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.” This is why the Command Center is dedicated to continuous development and growth to the Glory of God.
Our Lord reminds us in I Corinthians 14:40 that all things must be done properly and in an orderly manner. The command center of St. Michael’s Spiritual Church is committed to doing just this.
