Mary Ellen Shell - Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

Mary Ellen Shell is the chair of our Pastoral Care team at the Salvation Army in Orillia.

Pastoral Care focuses on the spiritual needs and concerns of our congregants and their families, where we have a genuine concern for each person.

Our pastoral care team offers a shepherding program, prayer outreach, hospital and palliative care visitation and bereavement care.

We do this because scripture teaches us that Jesus cared for His flock and as church leaders we are to model His behaviour and “feed His lambs” and “tend His sheep”.

Acts 20: 28 states “we are to pay careful attention to ourselves and to all the flock” in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God which He obtained with His own blood”.

Business Administration/Worship Leader

Steve began serving in the A/V ministry for the church. A few years later Steve felt God’s call to worship ministry and is not overseeing the praise team ministry as the leader. f

Steve finds it a great honour and responsibility  to stand before the Church family each week to sing praise to God. 

As Chair of the Finance Board Steve brings years of experience from the business world which enables him to carry out his responsibilities with excellence.
