What is Ministry?
Ministry is not just for pastors or prayer leaders. The word “ministry” simply means serving the needs of others. Anyone can minister through prayer, volunteering, or employment while spreading the Word of God!
You can help us change lives one person, one family, one block at a time through ministry opportunities like these, below:
