Good Stuff

"People are in ministry every day. They have a ministry to their family, their friends, their workplaces. They just don’t understand it as ministry. A mother who sees herself as a minister will approach parenting completely different.We get so focused on plugging people into ministry at church, that we end up shrinking "ministry" down to "volunteering at the church." We do a great disservice to people when we do that. Ministry is life. We need to create a culture of service and ministry and turn people loose to see all of life as ministry."

Joel Hunter, Senior Pastor, Northland Church in Orlando, Florida
