Truly effective ministries encourage healthy growth in a church. Active, vibrant ministries actually minister to the church body, providing an abundance of opportunities for individuals to mature in their Christian walk. Overall, this is about you and your walk of faith. Serve God by serving others: share your time, your heart and your God-given gifts. "You see that his faith and his actions were working together, and his faith was made complete by what he did." (Jas. 2:14)
