how to become a partner at gwathmey?
Step 1 - Attend Partnership Class
If you are new to Gwathmey, our Partnership Class is where you can learn more about our church and start the partnership process. Sign up for our next Partnership Class on Sunday, April 30th following service.
Step 2 - Partner Interview
The prospective partner meets with an elder/pastor to provide basic biographical information and recount God’s converting work in his or her life. The prospective partner would then sign the statement of faith and church covenant, and the application would go to the elders/pastor.
Step 3 - Elder/Pastor Recommendation
At a regularly scheduled elders’/pastor meeting, the elders/pastor will review the applicant’s testimony. Upon receiving their collective approval, the candidate’s application proceeds to the next step: congregational affirmation.
Step 4 - Congregational Affirmation
During our regular partners' meetings, an elder/pastor briefly describes how the applicants, who are desiring to be admitted to partnership, have come to know the Lord. Questions are fielded, a vote is taken, and with a majority agreement, candidates are admitted into partnerships.
