Pastoral Affairs Committee

In accordance with the principles laid down in the Bible, the council sets up the Pastoral Affairs Committee (PAC) to guide the Church in matters relating to prayer and teachings of God’s word and towards fulfilling God’s will by overseeing the spiritual well being of the Church. Some of the responsibilities of the PAC include:

  • Developing the Sermon Series
  • Monitoring and overseeing the spiritual content of the various Bible study groups within the Church.
  • Ensuring that proper and adequate instruction and counseling are provided for new Christians, members and friends in crisis, persons wishing to become members, be baptized, get married or undertake any other Christian activity.
  • Advising the Church Council on Spiritual matters.
  • Responsible for the preparation and updating of the Church Ordinances on birth, marriage, death and any other Ordinances as may be approved by the Church Council from time to time

 The PAC is not involved in the governance and/or administrative functioning of the Church which is vested in the Church Council.
