"Consider the minister. Through example and message, ministers inspire, strengthen, comfort, and celebrate to help us grow deeper spiritually, taller personally, and wider communally - Lay ministry means we care for and celebrate one another, we teach and encourage each other, we inspire and motivate. When we share what we have with others, ministry is multiplied."
