Dream On: Perry Paulding Shares His Hopes and Dreams for Summitview


 


Editor’s note: Perry Paulding was formally recognized as a pastor at Summitview on Sunday, November 8. You can learn more about our pastoral recognition and training process here and here.


As the newbie pastor on the block at Summitview, I was asked to share my dream for the church and what my wife, Katie, and I are believing God for in the coming years here. In a word, I would say, maturity – spiritual, doctrinal, moral, ethical, relational, social, verbal and biblical maturity. Perfection will never be attained in this life, but maturity is within reach of everyone.

Paul says maturity is God’s intended goal for every Christian. In Ephesians 4:12-14, pastors are charged to “equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (emphasis mine).

Why is this so important? Paul continues in verse 14: “…so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.” Ignorance, immaturity and sin destroy lives, but Jesus said that the truth will set people free (John 8:32). There is nothing more thrilling than being a part of seeing that promise become a reality in people’s lives.
