They say you can pick your friends, but you can't pick your family! When we are brought into the family of God the Father, we realise the amazing diversity of his kids. There absolutely is no "typical Christian". The Prayerhouse family is no exception: we have people of all shapes and sizes, and from such wildly different backgrounds.

We have people who have grown up in a believing household, always believing in Jesus. We have others who have spent their lives a thousand miles away from God and have come to know him much later in life. We have teachers, cleaners, recovering addicts, doctors, stay at home parents, business people, artists, students...

As family we have spiritual mums and dads who take the responsibility for leading. We call the leadership team Elders, a term taken from the Bible. The Bible describes church leaders with terms like shepherds, pastors and overseers. The responsibility of church leaders is to teach and model the authentic Christian life. It is to gather people together to worship and build community, whilst overseeing support and care within the church family. Paul, the famous apostle, described himself as a father, but also as a mother, caring for her children. This is the kind of leadership we aspire towards. We see the purpose of leadership as helping each other discover the awesome love of the Father, and to do the stuff of "ministry" as an overflow of gratitude and love.

Right back in the early days, when we were a small group meeting at Weymouth College Paul was given the task of heading up the leadership team. Paul and Anna were married in 1989 and have together been growing into leadership since then.
