This pastoral ministry consists of Pew Disciples trained to facilitate the needs and concerns of the Ebenezer congregation. During worship services, Pew Disciples are seated throughout the sanctuary to distribute and collect cards from members who have a need that they want the church to address. These concerns are then forwarded to the appropriate ministry/ministerial staff person that is best equipped to handle the concern. Pew Disciples then follow up with the member to make sure that their concern has been addressed.
Pew Disciples also evangelize outside the walls of Ebenezer about church activities and ministries, with the objective of bringing new members into the body of Christ. In addition to worship service logistics training, Pew Disciples are also trained in the areas of service, discipleship and evangelism.
