Currently, the Caring Council at the Fellowship is in the initial stages of developing a lay-led team of Pastoral Care Associates, with the goal to roll out this program in 2018. Pastoral care is a ministry of presence and support for members of the congregation in times of need. It is different than pastoral counseling, which is working with someone to make a change in their life and requires a ministerial degree or certification as a counselor.
