“Tentmaking: A Ministry of Choice – A Choice for Ministry”
Welcome to the World of
Tentmakers follow the path of the
Apostle Paul, the first "Tentmaker". Making tents as a living,
he proclaimed the Gospel in every city and village he visited.
Believing that "God has appointed a time for every matter, and for every
work (Ecclesiastes 3:17,) tentmakers serve churches and Christian
communities across the globe. Rural, urban, suburban, transition,
yoked, clustered, or other...Tentmaking is a covenanted ministry of
clergy and congregations. With special challenges and
opportunities, members of the Association of Presbyterian Tentmakers
support one another in this specialized ministry.
The purpose of the Association of Presbyterian
1) To be advocates for alternative models of ministry
throughout the church.
2) To define and affirm Tentmaking as a valid express
ion Christian ministry
3) To nurture and support tentmakers as continuing
active members of presbyteries in good standing.
4) To foster mutually beneficial contacts and
relationship with similar organizations in other denominations and other
parts of the world.
5) To organize conferences which shall provide
opportunities for worship, fellowship, spiritual growth, and for the
meetings of the Association.
