What does a Pastoral Care Minister Do?
The Pastoral Care Minister works with the ministerial team to insure that no one is forgotten in our community in transition. In particular the Pastoral Care Minister enters into a ministry of conversation and prayer with those who are housebound, those in care facilities and those carrying a burden of illness or grief.
The Pastoral Care Minister works with and reports to the Minister of Community Life and Pastoral Care to identify and prioritize pastoral care needs in the congregation.
The Pastoral Care Minister works with a team of volunteer pastoral visitors to develop a network of caring relationships with all members and adherents of the congregation.
The Pastoral Care Minister exercises a ministry in which no phone call or visit is an interruption in a busy schedule but which is, rather, the center of the ministry itself.
