Ministry & Service

Disciple-making ministries recognize that growing and living faith is a faith that is put into action and in the service of others. Ministries seeking to strengthen a disciple-making culture will engage disciples in ministry and service: ensuring individuals and teams are equipped for ministry, and entrusting them with responsibilities in ministry that align with and support their God-given gifts, passions, and personalities, for the sake of the gospel.
