Spirit Care is a pastoral ministry to Church of God retired ministers and their widows.
Recently, Pastor Jerry Daniel was appointed to serve as our State Spirit Care Representative. He and his wife Sue have a heart for this ministry and are looking forward to working with our retired Ministers and Minister’s Widows. They have committed to doing everything they can to promote the ministries of Spirit Care in the state of Florida.
Working with Reverend Daniel as invaluable team members will be our Spirit Care Elders. These Godly men bring a wealth of compassionate experience to the ministry of Spirit Care. Focusing on prayer, communication, and support, they will provide ministerial care to Florida’s Retired Ministers and Minister’s Widows.
Spirit Care hosts two special annual banquets for retired ministers and their widows. The Christmas banquet is always held on the first Friday of December each year and is conducted on the Campground in Wimauma, FL. The summer Camp Meeting banquet will be held on Monday of Camp Meeting each year.
Matter of Honor Adoption Plan Agreement
One way that Spirit Care is able to assist the retired ministers and their widows is through our Matter of Honor Adoption Program. Local churches, ladies groups, or even individuals are able to adopt a retired minister or widow. Assistance is provided as follows:
- Endeavor to provide him/her with a sense of self-worth and belonging as we express our love and appreciation to them as our own.
- Lighten their financial load as we possibly give them a monthly love offering and/or remember them on special occasions such as their birthday, Christmas and state meetings.
- Pray for them and cooperate with them as they provide special ministry to us as assigned.
