Community UMC is a church comprised of more than 800 members and hundreds of additional attendees, who attend two campuses located north and south of the city of Lima. The Leadership Board recognized the inability of the pastoral staff to sufficiently serve those in need given the sheer size of the congregation. As a result, we now offer a Lay Pastor ministry.
Lay Pastors are unpaid servants who help visit the sick at the hospital, organize the church in times of need, and connect with people, both new to our congregation and those who were once involved but have become inactive. Lay Pastors train for ten weeks, looking at the necessary skills and dynamics of providing care and assistance to others.
There are several opportunities for Lay Pastors to get involved and use their skills:
Lunch Bunch, On Our Own, Hospital Visitations, Discipleship, Health & Wellness, Small Group Leaders, Worship Participants, etc.
