Our Church is Finally Starting its Pub Ministry!

Written by Mark Van Steenwyk : January 14, 2005

We’re finally started our bar outreach! (the Pub Gathering)  


I’m pretty excited about it.  We’ll see how it goes.  Our ELL tutoring ministry is hopefully going to start conversation classes in the next month as well.  We’ve also got some opportunities for working with a local campus ministry geared towards international students.  We have so many opportunities for ministry, but such a limit of resources and people to do it-I guess that’s the norm.  We all hear about the few examples of well-resourced churches that burst upon the scene, but most churches are like ours.small, obscure, and trying to be as faithful as possible with what they’ve got.

    What a fantastic ministry..that sounds great!

    You bring up an interesting point about there not being enough people. In the last 2 churches (both emergent or postmodern or whatever they are called these days :-) ) there is a great suspiciousness of people who present themselves to help. My husband and I are both bright and deep belivers and have been puzzled by this. The churches cry out for help, but when people offer to help, they are not allowed for some reason. I have no idea what thats all about, or if its common for that type of church or what.

    Dont mind me…just thinking out loud in your comments :-)

Got something to say?
