The purpose of the Pastor's Aid Ministry is to provide moral, spiritual and financial support to the Pastor.
Is to lift the pastor up in prayer show sympathy let him know we realize the burdens he carries and lighten it as much as possible. We should support the pastor, praise his sermons and his acts of care for the membership how he humbles himself in serving God. We should teach others to refrain from gossip and not criticize the pastor.
The pastor's aid ministry is committed to providing necessary support to the pastor and his family within the church with encouraging words, prayers, financial support, and other actions of love. Hosting activities for the Pastor and First Lady during special events and occasions. We also will assist the pastor in fulfilling his vision for the church and community. Our responsibility is to provide special needs to the Pastor such as cleaning of robes, pulpit necessities, towel, clean glasses, water and juice. This also includes being attentive to his needs before and after he preaches. Be mindful and all his outside engagements we support him by attending other churches when he is the visiting preacher, we plan and make his visiting pastors comfortable by providing juice, tea or water.
