Assisting Ministers & Cantors

The development of Faith’s worship leader formation program was facilitated by Joe Simmons, principal cantor of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in NYC, and was featured iThe Lutheran magazine.

Assisting Ministers and Cantors cultivate their ministries by meeting with their respective groups for monthly forums and individually for personal coaching.


Assisting ministers

The role of the Assisting Minister is to engage the assembly in the liturgy. They do so through spoken word by proclaiming scripture and assisting the Presiding Minister at the font and table.


Cantors proclaim the Word through chant and song at Sunday morning services and special services. They enliven the liturgy and lead the assembly to engage more fully in Word and sacrament.
