Concrete Reasons to Be Part of 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’re been planning to join one but with hesitation, here are six reasons to believe it is the right way to go.
Serving God in an Organized Manner
Is there anything in life that does not have structured and order but still thriving? 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).

Finding Parallels Between Help and Life
To God, love is of supreme importance. The love that you show was you give medical assistance to refugees or give food to a needy person’s plate – these things leave a permanent 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 that certain people deliberately decide to live without. Many people are would rather hang out with people who have less than positive 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 in tandem with them, and most likely will identify them outside of the ministry during service or even in your neighborhood. They could have some other like-minded buddies all enjoying hanging out as a group. Before you notice it, you’ve got an entire new circle of friends.
Building Your Skill Sets
Planning to list work experience? How about starting 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. In everything you do, work with all your heart, as for God, right? All of these can happen in your ministry, all the while improving your skills and enjoying every minute of it.
Ever grow dead beat about your ministry, thinking your efforts are only going to waste? Unless your ministry has been utterly mismanaged, you might have to think again. Most likely, are you are in that same spot God wants you to be, when He wants you to be there. You’re undoubtedly filling a void and doing your role, assisting in works for Christ. Now no purpose could be greater than that.
