Ministry and Pastoral Care Committee

About Ministry & Pastoral Care Committee

The purpose of this committee is to sustain and support quarterly, regional, half-yearly, and monthly meetings and worship groups to be instruments of God’s love and care to one another and to their members, attenders, visitors, and communities throughout the Yearly Meeting. Our charge is to assist these bodies so that they can better enable, empower, and provide ministry and pastoral care, as well as support those serving in the Yearly Meeting in pastoral roles. The work of this committee is under the care of the Ministry Coordinating Committee (MCC).
