Stating How God Shapes Ministry Through You

A Ministry Philosophy provides a comprehensive view of your core values and beliefs determining the way you act, lead, and live. It clarifies goals, priorities and purpose, highlighting what is most important to you. Your ministry philosophy will help to illuminate what, if any, differences exist between your actual and preferred values. The Ministry Philosophy examines questions, such as:

  • Why are you in ministry?  What is the whole purpose of ministry anyway?
  • Who are you ministering to?  Why? What are your goals for the people to whom you minister?
  • What features of ministry are most important to you?
  • What would you like to achieve in ministry?  Why?
