Find YOUR Place in Ministry

Every Member in Ministry

And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ . . .

Ephesians 4:11-13

Congratulations! You completed your Personal Ministry Profile! As you worked through the various elements of your PMP, you probably began to understand the areas of ministry where God uniquely qualified and called you to serve. Now, it is time for you to consider how you are going to use this calling for ministry within the context of your local church.

God gave certain people within the church the specific responsibility of equipping the other members to effectively minister according to their calling. Each staff minister at your church should consider it his/her job to equip the members of the church to serve in their area of ministry according to God’s calling.

We recommend you meet with an appropriate staff person at your church to discuss your Personal Ministry Profile and work together to line it up with the ministry activities of your church. If “just the right match” doesn’t currently exist, talk with the staff member about creating a new ministry that fits the vision of the church and sets you free to fulfill God’s calling on your life!

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength God supplies–in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.

1 Peter 4:10-11
