The opportunity existed in the Greater Bethany Baptist Church to develop and implement a Lay Pastoral Care Ministry. The pastor had participated in a two-year clinical experience in the past and was eager to equip and empower lay leaders and potential leaders through training for the Pastoral Care Ministry. Presented in this dissertation are the design, implementation, and evaluation of a group of lay leaders' training experience. It is my hope that the results of this study may be used as a training manual for shared-servant style pastoral care leadership for lay leaders.
