LeadershipThe Elders and Deacons of Harambee provide leadership for a church where the members and regular participants do the work of the Gospel -- the high call of the Church. Often, people elevate church leadership in a way that is hollow and counterfeit -- imagining a perfect people with few flaws and a ‘happy’ life -- the sure result of which is a spiritual class system that pre-empts the work of the Body.
It is our view that everyone is a leader in the things that God puts in front of them: Family, work, school, community, the Gospel, etc. Leadership within Harambee is merely another expression of the specific callings that God places upon each of his image bearers. Our Elders and Deacons are people who have been called to put their hand to the plow (in specific ways) as we plant Harambee.
