Worship is the believer’s response with all that they are: mind, body and spirit, to the worthiness of all that God is, God does and God says. As a result, the Worship Ministries of the Place of the Outpouring include all the ministries that collectively come together to facilitate an atmosphere conducive to the visitation and transformation of the Holy Spirit.
Associate Ministers assist the Pastor in the ecclesiastical work within the congregation including: providing leadership in the worship services; administering the ordinances; providing faithful and consistent prayer covering for the Pastor and the members; availability for leadership of any and all ministries; carry the on call phone to provide immediate Pastoral care; visitation of sick and shut in; provide spiritual leadership for the maturing of the Body of Christ. Included in this would be the monthly reading list, attending conferences, worships, and participating in training meetings with the Pastor.
