“28 So God has appointed some in the church [f]for His own use]: first apostles (special messengers); second prophets (inspired preachers and expounders); third teachers; then wonder-workers; then those with ability to heal the sick; helpers; administrators; (speakers in) different (unknown) tongues. “-1 Corinthians 12:28, Amplified Bible
What is Church Administration? It is a gift from God. Training can equip you, but God is the only one who can call and empower you to serve effectively in whatever your role is in church administration. Church administration is spiritual service to the Body of Christ which involves the wise stewardship of God’s resources for the accomplishment of the work of ministry. Church administration is a means for serving people effectively, while making efficient use of resources in a manner that glorifies God. The Administrative Ministries of Fountain of Living Waters Church are as follows:

Romans 12:2 – And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Church growth is spreading the good news of Jesus Christ in more ways and to more people than ever before. People must experience the life-changing message of God’s love and the wholeness that comes from living within His love. Fountain’s mission is to not only promote growth inside the walls of the actual church building starting with the transformation of individuals but also outside the walls of the building, in the space of the world and in people’s lives. We are change agents that live our faith throughout our daily lives, beyond the church’s physical walls. We realize Church becomes an action verb as we tell of the Goodness of God. We recognize through the journey of life that we cannot cheat God by keeping His Goodness to ourselves. The Church Growth Ministries of Fountain of Living Waters Church are as follows:
Colossians 3:16 – Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
The Ecclesial Ministry is to help build up the body of Christ through sharing His Word through teaching. We are only effective, if we verbally share God’s Word in ways that hold the interest, fit the age level, accurately represent God’s intent, and encourage the people to do something with what they learn. We must help them know to, love, follow and serve Jesus and become more like Him in all they say and do. We must not only tell the people what they need to know but also demonstrate it by our lives through actions, attitudes and words. The Ecclesial Ministries of Fountain of Living Waters Church are as follows:
