What Works for Me In… Involving Elders in Pastoral Care

Pastor Jim McMurray (jimmcmurry@gmail.com), Senior Pastor of Hood View Seventh-day Adventist District (Oregon Conf) has adapted an idea he used while pastoring in Sonora, CA to divide his congregation into 24 geographical parishes. Each of his 24 elders (that’s Biblical isn’t it!) gets to know the members in one of the areas, makes visits and delivers materials from each church family’s mailbox slot, and encourages a small group to start, whether led by him or one of the members who lives there. Watch more from this video clip filmed while he pastored in Sonora.
