Major Reasons to Join a Ministry
In a general sense, ministry is a chance for you to help others while leading them to God, whether in your home or work environment, at church, and so on. If you’ve been thinking of joining one but with reservations, here are six reasons to believe it is the right thing to do.
Serving God in an Organized Manner
Is there anything in life that does not have structured and order but still thriving? Participating in ministry makes you part of a group determined to attain the extraordinary, whether caring for the church property through housekeeping or encouraging others to be with Christ with evangelism. You also receive guidance from the ministry’s leaders, whether directly (you and the leader reciprocally accept a mentor/mentee relationship) or indirectly (their attitude, behavior, and decisions shape your own as you scrutinize them in action).
Serving God and People by Offering Your Ideas, Skills and Experiences
Case Study: My Experience With Churches
For God, nothing is more important than love. The love you show as you give free food to a poor person or provide give medical assistance to refugees, leaves a memorable mark on their hearts. This is certainly augmented when you do it for God, as Matthew 6:33 suggests – a great way to spend your time indeed.
Gaining Fellowship with Other Believers
Fellowship is a big deal that some people intentionally live without. A lot of folks are willing to hang out with friends with compromising values, all for the sake of company. Why not forgo that option and befriend the amazing people in your local community of believers? You work with them as a team, and most probably will be familiar with them outside of the ministry or even in your neighborhood. They may have some other like-minded pals wanting to hang out together. Before you notice it, you’ve got an entire new circle of friends.
Building Your Skill Sets
Looking for opportunities to list work experience? Why not begin with your ministry? Explain why working as the graphics designer, sound engineer or administrative assistant at your church wouldn’t find a place on your resume as relevant experience. Whatever you are working on, do it with all your heart, as for God, correct? All of these can happen in your ministry, all the while improving your skills and enjoying every minute of it.
Do you ever get tired of your ministry, believing your work is just going to waste? Unless that ministry has been badly mismanaged, rethink your thoughts. Most probably, are you are right where God would like you to be, when He wants you there. You’re surely filling a void and performing your part to support works for Christ. Now there couldn’t be a greater purpose than that.
