Pastoral Support Team

What is the Pastoral Support Team? 

The Pastoral Support Team (PST) is a discipleship community of future Rock Church leaders that actively engage in pastoral care ministry while receiving ministry instruction, modeling, and supervision. 

The Pastoral Support Team mentoring ministry is a minimum of a ten-month commitment, with classes taking place approximately three Sundays a month. The classes will begin on Sunday, February 18th, at 1pm. 

The mentorship is considered to be a practical and educational process for mature believers who sense a call to minister to the people who attend and visit Rock Church. The design of the training process is to give personal instruction and practical experience within the full range of biblical church leadership and evangelistic functions.
