Equipping Laypeople

to give Pastoral Care

God has raised up Lay Pastors Ministry, Incorporated (LPMI) to empower lay people for caring ministry, and to support them in their ministry through partnership with the local church.

Lay Pastors Ministry, Inc. serves churches by partnering with them in mobilizing and equipping lay people to provide competent, consistent, and loving care for their members.

We achieve this vision by providing equipping resources and educational conferences focusing on congregational care by lay people.
