Ministry Has A Purpose

As we face the unknown in the current context of a pandemic, we are also faced with questions about how health ministry can impact lives for good and for eternity.  Through the Ministry Goals series, we will consider real issues that are facing society, and how we as a church can be the agents of positive change by sharing hope and wholeness through the healing power of Christ.
