PASTOR'S AGAPE SOCIETY MINISTRY
The members of this ministry attend to the welfare of our Senior Pastor and his family. They are guided in their efforts by Holy Scripture, which states, “Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially they who labor in the word and doctrine” (I Timothy 5:17). Their responsibilities include ensuring that opportunities and/or resources are made available to the Pastor so that he might be continually restored and renewed—spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. In collaboration with the Board of Stewards, they also coordinate planning activities related to the Pastor’s anniversary celebration and other opportunities for members of the Reid Temple congregation to honor the Pastor and his family during the course of the year.
Contact Dr. D. Fredrica Brooks-Davis, Ministry Leader, 301-352-0320, ext. 450, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information on this ministry and its upcoming meeting dates and times. This ministry meets on the Reid Temple-Glenn Dale Campus.
Board of Stewardesses
The Stewardesses of Reid Temple assist the Board of Stewards in the administration of its duties. They are responsible for preparing the church altar before each Sunday service, to ensure that the Communion linens and utensils are clean and that the altar rail is dressed. They also order the elements of the Lord’s Supper for consecration and administration to the Pastor and congregation. During Sunday services—when they are required to dress in white garments for special visibility and to sit together at the front of the church, close to the altar—members of the Board of Stewardesses assist at the altar during Baptisms, prayers, confessions, and re-dedications.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE/VOLUNTEER
Members of the Board of Stewardesses are nominated by a member of the Board of Stewards and approved by the Senior Pastor.
This ministry meets every Saturday before the 1st Sunday at 11:00am on the Reid Temple-Glenn Dale Campus.

board of STEWARDs
The members of the Reid Temple Board of Stewards are the spiritual lay leaders of the church. In that important spiritual leadership role, they attend to, and are held accountable for, the church’s overall spiritual and financial health and renewal. The Stewards collect and manage all funds received by the church, and they ensure that adequate provisions are made for the salary, travel, and comforts of the Senior Pastor and his family. As the Pastor’s “cabinet,” the Stewards assist him in promoting and following his God-given vision for Reid Temple’s growth and progress. They oversee the activities of the church’s numerous ministries, commissions, clubs, committees, and other organizations, and organize revival and evangelistic programs to ensure that the church remains spiritually healthy.
The members of the Board of Stewards are selected by the Senior Pastor and confirmed by the Quarterly Conference.
