“And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves.” (1 Thessalonians 5:12-13)
The mission of The Pastoral Stewardship Ministry as a service ministry is to provide direct personal support to our Pastor and First Family.
As God has seen fit to bless First Calvary Baptist Church with this Shepherd for the edification of its Flock, we must provide any such support and assistance to the Pastor as to alleviate the enormous responsibilities required in building the Kingdom of God by whatever means necessary.
This ministry, working with and through other ministries and the congregation of the First Calvary Baptist church, will meet the needs of the Pastor and First Family through encouraging words and deeds in prayer, personal, physical, mental and financial support.
The ministry will endeavor to ensure that the congregation is aware and acknowledge the authority of the Pastor as their Spiritual Leader under God.
This ministry will maintain his robes, handkerchiefs and miscellaneous items. Support the Pastor by attending other churches when he is the visiting preacher, plan and make his visiting pastors comfortable by providing for their needs.
This ministry will participate in any fundraising efforts to accomplish such goals as providing financial support for special events such as the Pastor’s anniversary, sabbatical, etc.
This ministry teaches the biblical principles of loving and caring for the Pastor as God has instructed His church to do.
