Seeking and Sharing the Fullness of Life

Pastors

Pastors are people whom the church believes to have been called and gifted by the Lord of the Church to exercise a ministry of spiritual leadership and pastoral oversight of the congregation and its life, prayer and ministry. They exercise this ministry in consultation and cooperation with one another, and each place themselves in relationships of professional supervision and voluntary accountability outside the congregation. They carry the primary responsibility for the preaching and teaching ministries of the church, for the ordering of its worship and prayer, and for the provision of pastoral care and counsel to people who are regular participants in the life of the church or who contact the church in search of care and counsel.
