The Pastoral Council of the Ministry of the Hope of Glory International is composed under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, by a group of dedicated and devoted people to the fulfillment of the vision and mission that the Lord has assigned to this Ministry before its founding. His indefinite mandate is to “speak” of Jesus Christ of Nazareth and “preach His Word” in London, in the UK, Europe and the world, without falsification or compromise, rightly divided, despite the opposition and oppression.
The selection of members is not by academic merit, not patronage or by ethnic, racial or family affiliation but by a written individual alliance and witnessed, according to his call, approval, membership and free consent to the teachings and instructions given by revelation of the Holy Spirit, in the Ministry.
Members of the Pastoral Council, who are men and women called by the Lord to serve him are instructed to work in unity of spirit, obedience, faithfulness, sincerity, respect, integrity, dedication, transparency, complementarity, sacrifice, and submission to the word of God and to each other. Their attention is drawn to their presence, regularity, punctuality at Sunday worship, and other events organized by the church; on the spiritual and moral productivity that contributes effectively to the growth of knowledge and development of Saints in the church; as well as the mandatory payment of their weekly or monthly tithes.
Members of the Pastoral Council are considered models in all things, namely: in their families, the Church, the Community and the Nation, according to what is written in I Tomithée 3: 2-7 “ A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach;3 not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous; 4 one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence 5 (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?); 6 not a novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. 7 Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. “
Currently our Pastoral Council is composed of five members, including the Senior Pastor. It meets at least once a week or as needed and emergencies. It handles all spiritual, moral, social and financial affairs of the church.
