SERVE / Ministry Purpose
The purpose of ministry has to do with service. The core is where the purpose of ministry takes place.
Some of the ministries that take place at TBPC serving our Church family and our community are as follows:
Officer Training: Recognizing that a church is only as strong as its leadership, Elders and Deacons, as well as those in training, receive systematic and regular training throughout the year.
Hospitality: The Hospitality Ministry Team reinforces the Membership aspect of our five-fold vision statement of Tampa Bay Presbyterian Church by promoting loving fellowship among the members of the congregation and welcoming seekers and potential members.
Children's Ministry: The Children’s Ministry of Tampa Bay Presbyterian Church will utilize age-appropriate methods to bring children to Jesus and membership in His family, develop them to Christ-like maturity, and equip them for their ministry in the church and life mission in the world, in order to magnify God’s name.
Youth Ministry: The purpose of the Youth Ministry is to encourage students to become LIGHT. Students become LIGHT when they: love one another in fellowship; invite others to follow Christ; give of themselves in service; honor the Lord in everything; train to follow the call of God.
Women's Ministry: The purpose of Women’s Ministry is that every woman know Christ personally and be encouraged and empowered to extend His kingdom into her life, home, church, community and throughout the world.
Men's Ministry: A multi-tiered program for involving Tampa Bay Presbyterian Church men in spiritual fellowship together.
Bible Study Ministries: Bible studies are designed to minister to men and women of all ages of our church and the community by providing a weekly Bible Study, fellowship, and prayer time. TBPC hosts a men’s bible study group, a women’s bible study group, a young couples bibles study group, and small study groups.
Missions: The Missions Committee is the ministry through which Tampa Bay Presbyterian Church identifies and nurtures those, including Tampa Bay Presbyterian Church members, whom God has called to short-term and/or career mission‘s service. The committee exists to educate and motivate the membership of the church with regard to its’ missions ministry.
Welcome/Greeters Ministry: The Welcome Committee / Greeters ministry provides a friendly, helpful atmosphere in welcoming and serving members, regular attendees and visitors each Lord’s Day for the Tampa Bay Presbyterian Church worship service.
