Pastoral Team

A ministry ministering to the hearts of all

The Friends International Centre pastoral team consists of ten pastors. Though not all are officially on the staff payroll, all are recognized for their pastoral work and ministry in the church. Their work is mainly to minister to the hearts of all besides other administrative functions. The pastors coordinate worship services, and play a key role as they work with the various church departments. Though every pastor has work cut out for them, their duties are complementary and will more often than not overlap each other. In view of this, there is flexibility and mutual support for each other amongst the pastors.
