Christian ministry is an attitude and action of serving others all the time.
“The whole world could abound with services to the Lord, not only in churches but also in the home, kitchen, workshop, and filed ––Martin Luther”
Definition: To minister is to serve. It is rooted in God’s service to mankind. Ministry presumes that someone has something to offer i.e. Physical assistance, spiritual nourishment, emotional healing, mental, financial, vocational etc.
