A pastor's aide committee provides support to the pastor of a church and his family in all areas of their lives. They are usually made up of a small group of members of the church, and they take on a detailed list of duties to complete their job.
Assist First Family
The pastor's aide committee assists the pastor and his family with other various needs, in a moral, spiritual, and financial sense. They keep track of the pastor's birthday, and his family's birthdays and other special anniversaries, and may plan activities or parties for these events. They put together special activities such as Pastor's & Wife Appreciation Day and assist the pastor in whatever he may need to best meet his goals for serving the church.
A pastor's aide committee provide any supplies or other items the pastor may need for his office or pulpit. They also take charge of planning arrangements for guest preachers that may visit the church and the community, and encourage participation of all members of the church in ministry work or helping in further aid to the pastor
Support and Prayer
A major duty of the pastor's aide committee is to pray for the needs of the pastor and his family. The committee provides the support needed to the pastor and his family, whether it be in the form of prayer, encouragement through words, or other actions that show their love and gratitude to the pastoral family.
