While Church Mothers’ specific duties differ from church to church, they usually fill many of the same roles.

A Church Mother is expected to assist the Pastor with various tasks, including ministering to the church’s young congregants and providing representation during church activities. 


A Church Mother also prays for the pastor and communicates with the church Deacons to ensure that he has everything he needs for his ministry. If problems arise within or among the congregation, a Church Mother brings those problems to the pastor’s attention.


Church Mothers may dress in a certain way to demonstrate appropriately conservative Christian attire. They also refrain from gossiping and idleness and aspire to Christlike character and actions in all circumstances.
