My opinion is that in today’s churches, church members simply do not get involved because the word “ministry” scares them. Why? Well, because it used to scare me as well! (If you would like to read more about that, check out my first blog.) However, I found that ministry can easily be taking things/hobbies that you love to do and using them for Christ. Whether it is food service, technology repair, sound & lighting production, web administration, drag racing, the list is almost endless! The main thing is, you can’t be scared. Don’t let your ministry opportunity scare you into not taking action. God can give you the courage to fulfill the potential he already knows you have! Think about it.
For example, I think it is well known now that I am one of Peace Haven’s many tech geeks. For many years I built custom computers and performed repairs at literally no cost to “customers” except the purchase of parts. I never one time thought of that as a ministry, it was just something I done on the side while working a full-time job. However; like most things, that era of my life faded away as awesome things like marriage and a family came into the picture. It was only until recently I started realizing I could use this talent as a ministry in my local church. Do you know how much the average computer repair costs?
