The environment for Contributing
“Ministry” is simply serving in the name of Jesus to meet needs and make a difference. Jesus said that even he “did not come to be served but to serve.” Because God has equipped all Christians with spiritual gifts for kingdom service, [1 Peter 4:10, Romans 12:6-8] our goal is to engage every Christian in meaningful ministry. We’re called to serve others in everyday acts of kindness, as well as intentionally and strategically volunteering in ways we’re best gifted. This can be done within the context of the church and outside in the community. Some opportunities are weekly, others are rotational, and some are monthly.
The real concept of membership is ministry, though you don’t have to be a Southpoint member or a Christ follower to serve on most teams. While every Southpoint member is called to minister, Ephesians 4:11-12 says that God has given pastors and teachers to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the church may be built up. At Southpoint, we help you discover how you’re wired, offer many opportunities to serve, and coach and give you the on-the-job training you need. Staff and leaders are to equip others.
Part of discovering how God can use your abilities is simply experimenting. You can “Sample Serve” a ministry. Observe or try it out one time, and if it’s not for you, just let us know and we’ll help you find something else that is.
Sign up on the right to sample a ministry and you will be contacted promptly.
