"For this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing. Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.” -Romans 13:6-7
The Pastor's Aide Ministry aims to work toward a unified entity and harmony with the church body. The pastoral ministry serves as a support system for the pastor, as well as his family. We work to provide the necessary support to the pastor and his family with encouraging words, prayers, respect and other actions of love. Letting him know we realize the burdens he carries and desire to lighten it as much as possible. The members of the ministry take responsibility for providing various items and supplies for the pastor to accommodate his office and pulpit.

As followers of Christ, we emulate His love and compassion when we show hospitality to all - not only to our Christian family, but even more so to visitors, strangers and those who are less fortunate. Gospel Light Church’s focus on hospitality promotes a strong focus on the needs of others, a willingness to share what we have and loving hearts seeking sincere relationships with all people by taking special care of our visitors, nurturing new members and being intentional about fostering an atmosphere of Godly fellowship and love.
Hospitality at Gospel Light is a group effort through:
