Ministry


Ministry is the word used to translate the New Testament Greek word “diakonia”.  The basic meaning of both is “service”.  Service to others, spiritually or otherwise, is not confined to ordained clergy or the church sanctuary.  All Christians are called to ministry, to love and honor God through service to others.
