Practice: Jesus Church
“Upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.”
A vibrant church in the heart of Oslo
Jesus Church is a vibrant church located in different areas of the Oslo Region. We are in the center of Oslo in Markus Kirke, St.Hanshaugen.
The heart beat of Jesus Church is to be a church of “disciples who make disciples”. This vision is expressed in the small groups called Disciple Groups (DG’s). The DG’s gathers during the week in homes. This is a place for fellowship, sharing of the Word of God and discipleship. If you will be joining Jesus Church during your year in TBBMI, you can be included in the program called “co-journeying”, which means you will walk alongside a leader where you will help each other to grow in faith and in Christ.
We also have weekly Sunday services in Jesus Church. Here you can serve in different practical areas such as:
Responsible for taking and uploading photos and films to social media with the goal to update the world about what’s going on in Jesus Church.
Responsible to rig everything up before the meeting and to take it down afterwards.
Responsible to welcome people at the door, helping them feel at home from the first moment.
Responsible to lead the church in worship before the throne of God.
Responsible to serve after the meetings, providing a good atmosphere for socializing.
Responsible to minister to people after the sermon.
Responsible to give a special welcome to everyone visiting the church for the first time.
Responsible to lead the children’s church.
The engagement in these teams and ministries can be varying depending on the church location you will choose. Jessheim for example is in a church planting fase where you are able to serve in many different areas.
There will also arise more ministry opportunities in near future to help serve the Sunday services, especially in the church located in the center of Oslo, since it is the mother church.
As a bible school student in TBBMI, you have a possibility to join one these different teams in one of our church locations that you are interested in and serve alongside them.
