Ministry Stems from Mission
Updated: Dec 12, 2019
Ministry stems from mission for if our life is focused on ministry then it is very unlikely that we will ever engage in mission. But if the focus of our life is on mission then ministry will simply be the means of fulfilling that mission in a given context. Paul was called to be a missionary to the Gentiles. That was his mission, however, Paul in order to fulfil his mission, developed a number of contextual strategies which when implemented enhanced his grassroots ministry. Mission always results in ministry. Thus, ministry is the by-product of mission. Therefore, it is very important to understand God’s mission and our role within it, as an instrument and participant of God's mission.
