Major Reasons to Join 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 planning to join one but with doubts, below are six reasons to convince you it is the right thing to do.
Serving God in an Organized Manner
Is there anything in life that lacks structure and order, yet still successful? Participating in ministry makes you part of a group determined to attain the extraordinary, whether caring for the church property through housekeeping or encouraging others to be with Christ with evangelism. You also receive guidance from the ministry’s leaders, whether directly (you and the leader communally acknowledge a mentor/mentee relationship) or indirectly (their decisions, behavior and attitude have an effect on your own as you study them in action).

Serving God and People by Offering Your Ideas, Skills and Experiences
The Essentials of Religions – The Basics
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 certainly augmented when you do it for God, as Matthew 6:33 suggests – a great way to spend your time indeed.
Gaining Fellowship with Other Believers
Fellowship is a big deal purposely ignored by some people. A lot of folks are willing to hang out with friends with compromising values, all for the sake of company. Why not avoid that option and befriend the wonderful 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 may have some other like-minded pals wanting to hang out together. Before you notice it, you’ve got an entire new circle of friends.
Building Your Skill Sets
Seeking to list work experience? Why don’t you start with your ministry? Explain why being the graphics designer, administrative assistant, or sound engineer of your church shouldn’t have a place on your curriculum vitae as relevant experience. Whatever you are working on, do it with all your heart, as for God, correct? All these can occur in your ministry, all the while developing your skills and taking pleasure every second 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. You might just be exactly where God wants you to be, and when He’d like you there. You’re undoubtedly filling a void and doing your role, assisting in works for Christ. Now that’s some purpose!
