Our Guiding Principles
In order to give some basic oversight to CPE’s expansion and there by maintain and sharpen its focus and purpose, the following guiding principles are stated. CPE was founded upon the conviction that it should be a ministry that expands with in the infrastructures of the local church. CPE is to function in the local church not outside of it. With any thing that is decentralized, there is a need for measures of quality control and the oversight of its application or in very short order the ministry can lose its focus.
When we first began envisioning the ministry that became CPE there were some central core convictions directing our thinking. These areas are vitally important to maintain. It is in these areas that oversight, vision casting, and the careful construction of a ministry ethos must develop.
