What is a Care Team?

Care teams assist the elders of a particular parish who are accountable to the Chief Shepherd Jesus to shepherd their flock and assist the deacons who are accountable to Jesus to serve the physical and material needs of their flock. The primary means of providing assistance is to keep in contact with every church member on a regular basis. Thus, the responsibility of the care team is to:


1) make contact with every member of the parish at least once every two months, and

2) meet together as a team at least once every two months to discuss the needs of all members.


By keeping in regular contact and discussing the results of those calls, the care team enables the elders and deacons to be informed and then shepherd/serve their people.
