Covenant for Simple Church Overseers in New Heart Community
Expectations for those who wish to serve as Overseers:
Ÿ Overseers are expected to teach, model, live and uphold the Mission, Vision and Values of New Heart Community.
Ÿ Overseers are expected to serve in the role of Elders for New Heart Community.
Ÿ Overseers are expected to model – or at least be moving towards – the qualifications listed for overseers in 1 Timothy 3:1-7.
Ÿ Overseers are encouraged to give the first 10% (tithe) of their income to Kingdom work, and to encourage the people they oversee to do the same. Additionally, it is expected that some percentage of your tithe will be given to the ministry of New Heart Community on a monthly basis, for as long as you serve in the role of Overseer.
Ÿ Overseers are expected to participate in the monthly “Overseer Gathering.”
Ÿ Overseers are expected to meet individually with Tim & Jeanine Pynes on a regular basis (how often is up to you), as well as keep them informed of the state of their simple church.
Ÿ Overseers are expected to participate in, and help facilitate, the monthly “Family Reunion.”
Ÿ Overseers are expected to adhere to the guidelines for processing monthly monies collected as an offering for the ministry of New Heart Community.
