hurches have always provided guidance and succor to their parishioners in times of need. In fact, beyond strictly spiritual concerns, churches traditionally have seen their mission as easing temporal suffering, helping where help is required and restoring dignity to men and women at pivotal points in their lives.

By longstanding tradition, Scientology ministers also have acted to ease suffering and provide counsel and succor to those in need, whether a member of their congregation or simply someone in the community who may need help. In fact, one cannot function as a Scientology minister without a genuine and overriding desire to help others, whether to ease current suffering or to help people advance up the Bridge. But unlike ministers and priests of other religions, Scientology ministers bring more than compassion and care to the needy – they bring a highly trained expertise in Scientology techniques that can resolve any problem at hand, no matter how insurmountable it may seem to the individual involved.

Ministerial services are important for any religion, but for individual Scientologists they take on special significance – it is by helping others that they help accomplish Scientology’s goal of making this world a better place for everyone.
