I didn’t know the church could do “that.”
All over Louisiana, churches are getting involved in helping our neighbors. Creativity is the rule of the day. By helping the under-served, trust is built as an opportunity to share the gospel and bring life change becomes a way of life.
KAIROS # 4: Engage Louisiana Baptist congregations in Compassion Ministries
Compassion Ministry seeks to meet the real and felt needs of people so that the gospel can be delivered, spiritual change is offered, and connection to the local church is realized.
Creativity is affirmed in this non-traditional and very effective ministry activity.
Get the Vision
Pray that God will give you a vision of how you can minister to your community.
Visit other similar ministry outreaches to see how they are set up and working. You don’t need to “re-invent the wheel” and this isn’t rocket science. It does take a lot of work, but others have done this before you and each situation is unique, but they all have similarities and you can learn a lot from talking/visiting existing outreach locations. Take the best ideas from each and use them to successfully form the ministry that is needed in your community.
