What does it mean for a local church to be a part of DOVE Canada?

It means the local church is part of an international family of churches partnering together to fulfill the Great Commission. We call these churches Partner Churches. Although some Partner Churches have the name DOVE Christian Fellowship in their name, this is not a requirement.

The Senior Elder is to be accountable to and receive spiritual oversight from the leadership of DOVE Canada. We define spiritual oversight as protection, direction and correction. The leadership of DOVE Canada is serving under the apostolic authority of the DCFI Apostolic Council. There could be Fivefold Trans-local Ministers who would serve as an extension of the leadership of DOVE Canada to help adequately serve the Senior Elders.
