MINISTRY TO OTHERS

  • HAVE A PURPOSE
    Do everything with purpose. Don’t do activities just for activities’ sake. (Proverbs
    29:18).
  • USE TEAMWORK
    Ministry should be built around a team concept. Avoid the lone ranger style of
    ministry.
  • EVANGELISM IS A PROCESS
    The Holy Spirit is the One who can change lives. Witnessing to others involves
    time, personal testimony, love in action, special events that share the Gospel with
    others, and training others to share Christ.
  • PRAYER LIFE (Phil 4:6)
    Youth ministry should be saturated in prayer by those who will commit
    themselves to ministry.
  • GROWTH
    As students accept Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, they must be
    nurtured and fed in order to grow and mature in Christ. During this stage, it is important
    that adult leadership spend time building relationships in order to create an environment
    of love, trust, and acceptance that will help produce spiritual growth.
    The key principles of this state are:
    1. Developing an atmosphere of love
    2. Developing a good fellowship of teamwork
    3. Developing each person’s sense of significance
    4. Developing a proper understanding of Christ
    5. Developing a prayer base
    6. Developing a communication of God’s Word

BACKGROUND CHECKS: You Owe It To Your Church

A ministry that serves children and youth has the obligation to exercise “due diligence” with regards to protecting its members, especially the children. By performing background checks on your perspective ministers your church is…

  • Putting up a safeguard at the “doorway” of the organization that will, in most cases, scare off sexual predators.
  • Offering peace of mind to discerning parents when choosing a church, by knowing your ministry is being pro-active in trying to protect the children.

Protect My Ministry

Thousands of ministries trust Protect My Ministry, a ministry background check company. One of the only background check companies that will do a free “re-verification” of records from the national criminal database for a volunteer, and to also do a “true” 50 state search on sexual offenders.

Protect My Ministry is a Christian-owned and operated business, being 51% business and 49% ministry. This business was started as the co-owners noticed that churches were not fully aware of the best sources for background checks or truly what they were getting.
