Project POAB Introduction

Introduction to Project POAB + Guiding Statements

In early 2017, the Elders of FHBC initiated Project Priesthood of All Believers (POAB) to pass the torch of leadership to the next generation. This page hosts updates, teaching, and documents from the project team. We are using the priesthood of all believers as a rallying point because we believe that our role as priests (drawing near to God, serving one another with our gifts, and being His witnesses in the world around us) is is one that honors our history and traditions while also pointing us toward who we believe God is calling us to be: a priesthood of believers, reaching up to God, reaching inward to each other, and reaching out to our neighbors, both near and far.
