Our Spiritual Advisory Team

The primary purpose of the Spiritual Covering & Advisory committee is to offer guidance
and subject matter expertise to the knowledge, understanding and strategic thinking of
the Executive Team and members of Activate Bermuda. The committee serves as
advisors to Activate Bermuda, providing spiritual recommendations and support for any
events, activities, and programs that may be undertaken. Working cooperatively with
the Executive Team and members of Activate Bermuda, the Spiritual Covering &
Advisory Committee significantly helps strengthen and improve upon the mandates
set forth for Activate Bermuda's programs and activities. The success of
Activate Bermuda depends, to a large extent, upon the support and involvement of
a strong group of leaders and community members who hear from the Lord and can
advise on spiritual and experiential matters.
