The size of the Mount Olive family is such that it is impossible for the Pastor to maintain a personal relationship with each member. It is, therefore, necessary that the membership be divided into cluster groups consisting of approximately 25 members. These groups are considered as families within the church family. In addition, a designated committee called the 'Group Representative Committee', is responsible for overseeing the administration and activities of these groups.
Group Captains are assigned so that a close link with the Pastor or his designated committee is maintained. This system of identifying and communicating with members has been deemed the most efficient and effective approach in meeting the desires of the Pastor and the needs of the congregation.
Group Captains are like shepherds over a smaller flock within a flock, over which our Pastor is the shepherd. The way Group Captains perform their duties will bring glory and honor to the 'Great Shepherd' of us all - our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Being a Group Captain is a very important responsibility and each one should remember that Jesus says in Matthew 25:23, 'thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things....', and so, whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God.
