We do not have to be a pastor at a Mega Church to have a ministry. I believe each Christian person in effect has their own personal ministry. It can be as small as one person, (you) or as large as the Lord allows, needless to say, no matter how small or large your ministry is, we all need to do it for the Glory of God.
I love Saddleback Church and their vision with small groups, in fact so much, that I am involved as a Community Leader. I love the leadership and the vision of Rick Warren. I have learned over the years that it really does not matter if you have one person in your ministry or small group, or a thousand, one person is just as important to God as the Ministry with a million members!
Be all you can be for the Glory of God, serve Him with all your heart and passion, and with just one mustard size seed of faith, what God will do with your dreams!
Five Purpose Questions (taken from Saddleback Church, Small Group Ministry , and Rick Warren, http://www.saddleback.com for more details and all rights reserved).
Based on how you are living right know, what are you centering your life around? What
is getting in the way of you centering your life on Christ?
How are the relationships in the community of your life? In what ways are you causing
conflict in your relationships?
How do other people see Christ reflected in your character? What flaws in your
character need to be changed?
How are you contributing to the kingdom of God with your life? What is getting in the
way of giving your best contribution of your life to God?
If someone were to look at your life from the outside, how well do you think your life
communicates the Gospel? What in your life holds you back from communicating the
gospel to others?
I would love to hear your thoughts on this! Share with me!
