In today's church services, we had a formal sending ceremony for the team. This consists of a prayer. During the prayer, people from the congregation place their hands on the team members.
The significance of this is:
a) It is a practice that was done in Biblical times;
b) it's a symbolic acknowledgment that the team is representing the people of the congregation; and
c) it is an act of corporate involvement of the congregation.
