Can I change my iPhone number to a local number so members of my church can contact me for appointments? I don't want them to have to pay for long distance.

Your phone number is embedded in your SIM card, not your iPhone. If you want to change your number, you'll need to work with your carrier to make that change. Otherwise, you could find a number forwarding service where you can purchase a local number and simply have it forward all calls to your iPhone. Skype offers this service if you purchase a SkypeIN number and I'm sure there are many other services out there like this.
