The Hospitality Ministry is a ministry that practices hospitality as modeled through the Old and New Testaments. In 1Peter 4:9-10 we observe demonstrations of hospitality. Our mission is to have an effective and motivated Christ centered group of greeters to welcome our guests. We are striving to be a loving model of warmth, to be friendly and to exhibit kindness to our guests and congregants though the act of hospitality and through our words.
This ministry's goal is to reach out to those that are incarcerated and present Christ to the unsaved. Ministry members also provide resources and support to ex-offenders and their families as they reenter society. Activities include visits to various correctional facilities and serving as conduits to mainstream those served into the New Jerusalem Family. The ministry also conducts annual Angel Tree program during the Christmas holidays.
The purpose of the Media Ministry is to enhance the church worship experience through the use of culturally relevant methods of communication in support of the Pastoral and Music Ministries. Media is used to develop and enhance an environment conducive to the movement of the Holy Spirit. Enhancements are meant to cultivate spiritual growth and provide an atmosphere that supports and encourages worship both within the sanctuary and through the use of external media outlets.
The Technical Ministries that make up the Media Ministry include audio, video, screens, image projection (IMAG), media duplication and website. The ministry supports all ministries and events at the church that have technical needs.
The ministry is an all volunteer ministry and we welcome new members whether experienced or not as we are willing to train all that are willing to learn.
The Nursing Ministry is designed to provide comfort, care, and concern for worshippers that are ill or under stress. We administer emergency/first aid treatment to worshippers for sudden illnesses or injury during the course of Worship Service.
The Nursing Ministry is also responsible for assisting the Pastor, Ministers and pulpit staff during worship services.
Pastor's Care Ministry
The purpose of the Pastor's Care Ministry is to attend to the needs of the Pastor, his family and ministers as they lead services. The nature of the work of the Pastor and ministers suggest a call and commission by Christ and is entitled to the liberal support of those whom they labor for. The Pastoral Care Ministry assists the Pastor via spiritual encouragement and moral support. We further believe that untold blessings can be reclined by those who help their Pastor (Philippians 4:16-19).
Nehemiah 4:9 (NKJV) “Nevertheless, we made our prayer to our God and because of them we set a watch against them day and night.”
The core mission of the Security Ministry is to provide an atmosphere of comfort, refuge, and worship.
