Our Vision for Ministry
The size of any local church (house-church or otherwise) is irrelevant. Jesus said, "Where ever two or more are gathered together" in His Name there he is also
It is GOD who builds HIS CHURCH, not humans
Our part is winning souls and making disciples. Some plant and some water, but it is God who gives the increase. We are content to plant and water, encouraging Believers to move ever onward into God's will for their lives.
There is nothing in scripture about building our "churches." If our focus is on building a congregation for our 501c3 organization, we are off-track
We do not become possessive of God's possession.
It is the Body of Christ (all believers) who are called to do the work of the ministry, and the ministry gifts of apostles, prophets, evangelists, shepherds, and teachers, are given to The Ekklesia (Body of Christ) to equip all Believers to join in the work of winning souls and making disciples (Ephesians 4:11-12).
Hungry Hearts Ministries provides many free online resources (as long as online platforms are available to Christians) and makes print materials available for purchase to use as curriculum and to assist in the work of winning souls and making disciples.
We ordain leaders. This is biblical. These include Evangelists, Pastors (including Assistant, Associate, and teaching Pastors), Deacons, and Elders. We rejoice to work with groups and individuals in various areas of outreach.
General (not comprehensive) requirements for leadership with Hungry Hearts Ministries[.faith] include:
- Agreement with our Statement of Faith and Vision: How can two walk together except they be agreed?
- Commitment: If a leadership position is sought, then responsibility, commitment, and accountability is required (It is required in stewards that they be found faithful)
