Church and Community ministries help congregations look beyond their walls to see the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs of the surrounding community. Jesus said, “ ... open your eyes and look at the fields, for they are ready for harvest” (John 4:35b, HCSB).
The Healthy Church Group offers consultations, on-site assessments, training and resources to help develop a strategy to evangelize and minister to communities by assisting:
- church staff
- directors of missions
- local associations
Opportunities for ministry in communities throughout the Golden State are limitless – if only California Southern Baptists will “open your eyes.” There are people all around CSBC congregations who desperately need help and hope. Churches can make a difference in meeting the needs in communities while also sharing the gospel.
CSBC is prepared to assist churches and church leaders in consulting, training and networking for the best ways to reach communities through:
- Resort and event ministries (Debbie Wohler at Tahoe Ministries)
- Community outreach ministries (Donna Howell)
- Literacy ministries (Eva De La Rosa)
- Migrant ministries (Feeding Those Who Feed Us)
- Chaplain ministries (James Thomas)
- Hunger ministries (Donna Howell)
