A Minister is a person who is trained in theology and is authorized to perform religious ceremonies, preach, and provide spiritual guidance and pastoral care in a Protestant church. They are responsible for leading the congregation in worship and for administering sacraments such as baptism and communion. They also work towards building a sense of community within the church and providing pastoral care to those in need. This can include counseling, visiting the sick and elderly, and offering support to individuals and families facing challenges. A Minister is not only a spiritual leader, but also an educator and facilitator, encouraging their congregation to explore and deepen their faith.
