Market Place Ministries

We recognize the need for more market place ministers in the workplace. We seek to empower such individuals to integrate their faith and work through evangelism and ethics. Paul said we are living epistles – there are a number of people around the world who still have not received a credible presentation of the good news. These people are in the market place and there will never be enough money or personnel to send out “full-time ministers” to carry out this mission.

Many places in the world are only open to people with specialized education and skills. Professional clergy are often refused visas for engaging in “religious” activity. These same countries, however, may gladly welcome doctors, teachers, dentists, oil drillers, agricultural specialists and accountants to add value to their society.

You don’t have to be a seminary or Bible College graduate or a full-time “minister” to expand the Kingdom. You, like Paul, can be a marketplace professional–using your specialized skills to open closed doors to the gospel message. More than ever we need people like you to help reach the billions who have yet to see and hear the good news.

Pastors & Church Leaders Empowerment

We empower pastors and church leaders to be able to effectively lead formal church leadership through three responsibilities and opportunities.

First, ordained leaders have the responsibility of “keeping the purity of the faith.” The Apostle Paul wrote to Titus that the leaders must teach what is in accord with sound doctrine. Failure to exercise that responsibility creates what the late Martin-Lloyd Jones calls “a church that ceases to make a difference.” Knowing and contending for the faith is a prime responsibility of church leadership, especially the eldership (see the book of Jude). If this is not done, the church not only flounders in its mission, but the people are not properly discipled and the foundations are shaky. That is why one requirement for church officers is that they be sound in the faith.

A second responsibility and privilege focus on shepherding God’s flock. In 1 Peter 5 elders are referred to as shepherds. “Shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly as God would have you“(1 Pet. 5:2, ESV).

In 1 Peter 5 elders are referred to as shepherds. “Shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly as God would have you“(1 Pet. 5:2, ESV). Shepherding requires personal contact. Leaders are to know the people, pray with and for them, and visit in their homes, primarily to inquire into their spiritual growth, needs, and development.

A third responsibility and privilege of the leadership is to oversee the planning process. In the same passage, 1 Peter 5, elders are instructed to have “oversight” of the flock. Oversight requires many things, such as leading the flock in the right direction, seeing that the people are trained and equipped for service, and following the right shepherd.
