We strive to give every member the opportunity to discover the spiritual gifts, passion, and serve in one or more ministries. We believe that being a follower of Christ requires serving others. This includes members and nonmembers. Serving is taking the love and message of Jesus Christ to individuals, groups and the whole world. Some ministries focus on special services.
The Armor Bearer Ministry is patterned after the Old Testament concept of loyalty and faithfulness practiced toward God's leaders. These dedicated and devoted individuals known as armor bearers, stood beside a leader to assist and protect him. As First Met grows, our Senior Pastor experiences increasing demands on his time. These ministry workers aid the Senior Pastor in a way that relieves him of worry and distractions from non-productive or non-essential activities.
