Mission - Christ Servant Ministries

The mission of the Christ Servant Ministry Program is to celebrate the training and service of  the  Laity in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church.  Lay Servant Ministry is at the core of every church. There is always so much work to be done and every job is important . Teaching  Sunday School, singing in the choir,  serving as liturgists,  doing evangelism, leading Bible studies, ushering, or caring for the sick and homeless are some of the ways the laity serve God.  In the Eastern PA Conference, we identify the laity who take special servant training to do these jobs as Christ Servant Ministers.  Their training revolves around 3 broad categories that combine words with deeds to serve the church and the community.  Christ Servant Ministers  are laity who seek training in how to spread the Good News of  Jesus Christ to the world

              ... by Leading,

                                 ... by Caring

                                       ... and by Communicating.

If you feel called to seek ways to proclaim his presence and power through all that you are and all that you do.... God may be calling you to be a Christ Servant Minister!  Do you ...

  • Listen to others who are suffering with personal crises...

  • Teach a Sunday School Class or lead a small group...

  • Serve as a liturgist or help in the Worship Service...

  • Visit nursing homes, hospitals, prisons, or neighbors...

If you answer yes to some or all of the above, then you are already responding to God's call in the ways of a Christ Servant Minister and can learn more about helping others grow in a life-giving relationship with Jesus Christ by reading and talking to your pastor and others about Christ Servant Ministries.
