Commissioning for those recently transferred as Fully Accredited Ministers, Pastors, Preachers and Mission Personnel

This section will include the following responsive words, led by Lynn Green and Kang-San Tan:

Today we commit ourselves to being those who are led by the Spirit of God, seek God's will and purpose;
Celebrating diversity, we will value, trust and respect one another in Christ;
being serious about discipleship, we will embrace adventure and risk-taking faith in our faithful God;
following the Servant King, we will be generous of spirit, encouraging and inspiring one another to be all that God created us to be;
seeking God's kingdom, we will hunger and thirst after his righteousness, confronting evil and praying for the grace to live the life of God's coming Kingdom now.
These are our hopes and these are our clear intentions
 We hear your call and dedicate ourselves to you afresh. Amen
