Every church member is called to minister. The Personal Ministries/Lay Activities leader encourages the development of spiritual gifts to win those outside the church, organizing members to implement witnessing and outreach programs. The Personal Ministries/Lay Activities leader works to inspire, motivate, and equip members to develop their God-given witnessing abilities and be missionaries in their communities.
Elders support this ministry by:
- Being personally involved in a church outreach program
- Providing Sabbath morning time to promote and support outreach programs
- Supporting soul-winning training in the local church
- Encouraging attendance at conference or mission outreach training programs
- Motivating and equipping members to be involved in witnessing and evangelism activities.
