It’s Not Just About a Box of Food
Compassion ministries can be found 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.
These ministries seek 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.
Compassion Ministries are defined as:
- Meeting Human Needs
- Building Trust
- Fully Sharing the Gospel
- Connecting People to the Local Church
