The Pastor has a strong commitment to pastoral ministry within the congregation. He has training and experience in pastoral care and is willing to be called upon. He also provides a ministry of referral to other agencies, counselors, and organizations where pastoral help may be found.
Disciples of Christ have always taught that each person in the church is a minister. The task of caring for one another belongs to every member. The greatest pastoral ministry of First Christian Church comes in the way our members offer love and acceptance to one another. This kind of pastoral care for one another is life-giving. It is also consistent with the love God offers us in Christ.
