MINISTRATION

TAKING JESUS TO OUR WORLD

Sharing the gospel with our community through personal witnessing and public evangelism.

What type of impact is your church making in the local community? Do the people around you know you’re there? Do they know you care? Understanding ministration can help you more effectively reach them for Jesus.

Jesus’ Method of Outreach

Jesus preached to large crowds, healed the multitudes, and even fed a group of five thousand. This was all public evangelistic effort and an expression of His desire to improve the spiritual and physical well-being of these communities. Yet, He didn’t do everything along these lines. When feeding the five thousand, He “gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes” (Matthew 14:19). He was showing His disciples the necessity of working together to reach the community.

Jesus also personally witnessed to those seeking spiritual and physical healing. He spoke to the woman at the well about the water of life, healed the centurion’s servant, and freed the Syrophoenician woman’s demon-possessed daughter. God has divine appointments like these in store for individual believers who have become disciples committed to ministering to those in need.

Ministry: One Step Closer to Replication!

Philip’s evangelistic efforts brought “great joy” to the city of Samaria (Acts 8:8). When we follow Christ’s method of reaching people, our churches will also bring great joy to their communities. Each phase of church growth builds upon the previous one, so solid education and proper organization must precede successful ministration. If done God’s way, education and organization will develop excited disciples who are eager to labor for souls through ministration—personal witnessing and public evangelism. As the church grows, the new manpower will help to facilitate the exciting end goal of replication.
