Ministering to people is a part of our foundation as a church. Ministry by definition is demonstrating God’s love to others by meeting their needs and healing their hurts in the name of Jesus. Our church is here to minister to all kinds of needs: spiritual, emotional, relational, and physical. Jesus said that even a cup of cold water given in His name was considered as ministry and would not go unrewarded. We are fulfilling Ephesians 4:12 (NRSV) to “… equip the saints for the work of the ministry.”
Our motto here at Abundant Life is “every member a minister.” Here are a few ways that we help “equip” people for their ministry:
Point of Influence – At Abundant Life we understand that everything rises and falls on leadership. It is the leaders that make things happen. With that understanding comes the realization that true leadership is influence, and that in order for every leader to be successful that must have influence, but most of all, they must have a place where they are influenced. A place where they are stretched and grown to be better…a Point Of Influence. On the first Saturday of every month the leadership of Abundant Life meets to be influenced, so they can influence and lead others to a stronger relationship with God.
