Outreach Ministry

"...just being like Jesus is
not enough. We have to
tell the world about Jesus."

Abbot Theodore,
The Teddy Bear Monastery ™

The ministry of Jesus Christ is an outreach ministry. Each of the four Gospels ends with a commission from Christ to His church to carry the Gospel message to the ends of the earth (Matt. 28:18-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46-49; John 20:21-23; and see Acts 1:8).

The links on this page will show you various ways you can minister to those outside of the church. How will you know one of these ministries is where the Holy Spirit wants to place you? You will know because it is something you will be drawn to do. Moving with the Spirit always increases your comfort level. Going in any other direction, or just staying still, always make you uncomfortable.

MAGIC & PUPPET MINISTRY: Ventriloquism, magic, and puppets all make use of the the art of illusion. This form of entertainment both attracts and holds attention. It's also an excellent vehicle for illustrating the Gospel and telling Bible stories.

MARRIAGE MINISTRY: This is one of the most important yet overlooked ministries. The article includes step by step instructions on how to put a wedding together, along with complete wedding ceremonies.

PRISON MINISTRY: You will never find a more concentrated group of individuals who needs ministry as those serving time behind bars. It takes a special person with a forgiving spirit to reach out and share the love and kindness of our Lord.
