Each person has talents, gifts, and experiences that allow for an individualized ministry. In the church we can see different ministries ranging from pastoral duties to music to youth and children's programming to mission work, both local and abroad. Other areas of ministry are often behind the scenes, but can include maintaining the building or meeting place, organizing events, monitoring finances, or editing newsletters and publications. In order for the church, the body of Christ on earth, to further God's Kingdom, all of these ministries must work together.
The work of ministry is not always easy, but it is fulfilling. As society changes, we shouldn't be afraid to expand the ministries of the church to reach out to others. We each need to find our role in the ministry of God's Kingdom so that we can serve God and serve our fellow man.
Find your ministry and work to fulfill your calling from God and be fulfilled by working for Him!
