When to call the minister . . .

  • The minister is available to help you 24 hours a day. You should never hesitate to call in an emergency, at any hour.
  • You are not “bothering” the minister with your problems. You are not taking time away from “more important” things I have to do. You are the important thing I have to do. One reason I am your minister is to be of help to you. That is what my time is for.
  • A minister cannot know when s/he is needed. You need to tell me. Don’t assume that I “already know”, and don’t be offended if I don’t know and you haven’t told me.

You might call your minister when . . .

  • Someone is in the hospital or is going to be
  • Someone is homebound and would like to be visited
  • There is a death in the family
  • You wish to discuss funeral arrangements ahead of time
  • You have children to be christened or dedicated
  • You have personal problems or family difficulties and need someone to talk to (your communication with me is confidential)
  • You want to get married
  • You don’t want to be married
  • You are arrested, in jail, or facing other legal difficulties
  • You have an important decision to make as to employment, education, etc.
  • You are angry with the minister and/or upset about something at church
  • You have friends in mind who might be interested in our church
  • You want to talk about religion
  • You do not yet know the minister and would like to get acquainted
  • You feel like going out for a beer and can’t think of anyone
