Concrete Reasons to Be Part of a Ministry
In a general sense, ministry is a opportunity for you to help others while bringing them to God, whether at work, at home, in church, etc. 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 has no order or structure yet still doing well? Joining a ministry makes you part of a team that strives to achieve the extraordinary, whether maintaining the church property by housekeeping or convincing others to believe in Christ with evangelism. You also get mentorship from the ministry’s leaders, whether directly (you and the leader jointly recognize a mentee/ mentor relationship) or indirectly (their decisions, attitude and behavior influence yours as you examine them in action).

Serving God and People by Bringing Your Ideas, Skills and Experiences to the Table
Getting To The Point – Religions
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 definitely augmented as you do it for the Lord, as implied in Matthew 6:33 – indeed, a very good way to spend your time.
Gaining Fellowship with Other Believers
Fellowship is a big deal purposely ignored by some people. Many people are would rather hang out with people who have less than positive 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 together with them, and most likely will know them outside of the ministry or even in your neighborhood. They could have some other like-minded buddies all enjoying hanging out as a group. 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 being your church’s sound engineer, graphics designer or administrative assistant wouldn’t b e considered relevant experience on your CV. In any thing you do, work passionately, as for the Lord, correct? All of these can happen in your ministry, all the while improving your skills and enjoying every minute of it.
Ever grow tired of your ministry, thinking that your efforts are but a waste? Unless your ministry has been utterly mismanaged, you might have to think again. Most likely, are you are in that same spot God wants you to be, when He wants you to be there. You’re undoubtedly filling a void and doing your role, assisting in works for Christ. Now no purpose could be greater than that.
