What Our Churches Are Doing in Ministry Our churches are doing some great forms of ministry! They are creative, innovative, and resourceful. They employ everyone from the young to the old in ministry in lots of non-church places with non-church people, just as Jesus did. Some of their ministries are interesting and unusual too. How Ministries Qualify for Inclusion on Our List In order for a church ministry to qualify for this list, it: 1. Must be local. Many of our churches are doing good ministries in other places but we include only those ministries that churches are doing here. 2. Must include people outside the congregation. If a ministry helps anyone outside the church family, it qualifies for this list. 3. Can be done by an individual in the church, by a church group, or by the entire church. The number of ministries done by individuals would be too large to include in this report so we prefer to include ministries done by groups or the whole church. We have, however, included some ministries being done by individuals if their church is supporting them in some way.
