The purpose of the 12 Tribe Careunit Ministry is to administer the member retention for the church. This involves helping new members get acquainted with the membership and assisting other members where needed. The12 Tribe Careunit Ministry will work to create continuity, unity, fellowship (according to 1 John 1:7), togetherness, and accountability via a systematic channel of communication process.


  1. The 12 Tribe Careunit Ministry is based on the 12 Tribes of Israel: Genesis 35:23-26; Exodus 1:2-5; Numbers 1:20-43; 1 Chronicles 2:2; Revelation 7:5-8.


  1. The Nation of Israel was divided into tribes for several reasons:
    1. Effective way to manage and govern a large group (Order).
    2. Dividing of the Promised Land, (Inheritance).
    3. Part of the culture and heritage, family clan and tribe (Connection).

Each member will be assigned to a Tribe Careunit based on careunit coordinator placement. As a careunit, prayer request, family matters, problems, concerns, celebrations, etc, can (should be) filtered up through the careunit to assigned careunit captain and careunit leader.

Every member is placed in one of the following 12 Tribe Careunits; assigned careunit leaders will contact new and current members once they are assigned to officially welcome member to the careunit.
