Ministry Teams 

Lake Oconee Presbyterian Church uses a "participatory methodology" that encourages members and regular attendees to become involved in ministry teams according to their interests and spiritual gifts. All ministry teams have one Ruling Elder, one Deacon and one staff member, of which all are given specific tasks. Some ministry teams meet each month (with the exception of June and December) some meet once a quarter or on an as needed basis.
