The word ministry comes from a Greek word which means “to serve.” Ministry is therefore about service; service to God, through worship, and service to one another through teaching, edifying, and prayer. here at Lebanon we have a variety of ministries and are always looking for new ways to to serve our community for the gospel of Christ. As the dynamics of culture changes so does the number of ministry opportunities.
The ministry of Jesus was initially one of preaching the good news about the Kingdom of God, of teaching, of healing, and of prayer. Such a ministry required the dedicating of His whole life to God and culminated with the offering of His body as a reconciling sacrifice. Upon His death the whole Christian community continued Jesus’ ministry of reconciliation. Likewise, we seek to pattern our lives after the life of Christ.
