I was just curious to see if anyone here is involved in ministry of any kind? Whether in be in the church, teaching a class or an outreach type ministry. Or maybe even just personally out to wins souls for the Kingdom!!

Also has anyone ever led anyone to Christ before?

I know so much of the time we are concerned with what God has done or doing in our lives, that we forget the great commision.

Peace!

I am involved in the ministry. I am a youth pastor for a local church. I've been with this church almost 3 years. I did 6 years at the last church and a few at a previous church. I've also gotten to lead a few people to the Lord over the years.

I used to work with the 4th and 5th graders at our church, but I had a serious disagreement with how the children where managed, and I had to leave.

I must confess that I have never lead anyone to Christ before, but most of the people I have shared Jesus with think I am a flake or weirdo....so maybe I'm just planting seeds.

I've played with the worship band a few times before, and am trying to become a "full-time" member as a bassist or drummer.

Amen brother!

Oh and DBF's post reminded me that I played guitar and bass at my old church for about 4 years.

I am part of a local assembly of believers, where I take part in a number of activities. I am the superintendant of the Sunday school, which has expanded to a Monday night school. I take part in preaching the Gospel on Sunday night when asked (on average every 5-6 weeks). I also take part in ministry of teaching to my fellow believers. We have a weekly bible study that requires preparation and sometimes have been asked to lead the study. I have seen souls saved, but I can only say I read and talked to them, and to see that The Lord Jesus Christ save them is a very humbling yet joyous occasion. But when I weigh those experiences against all my lost oppertunities, it reminds me of my own failures, and I know there is more I can do.

We all can be encouraged to know that we can do mighty things In Him, but can do nothing in ourselves.

In our previous church (membership = 70 people) I was the worship band's drummer.

In our current church (membership = roughly 1200) I serve on the Prayer line as a Prayer Partner. We stand at the front during a portion of the song service and people can come pray, confidentially of course, with one of us. You know, that whole 2 or more ask in my name kind of thing.

Also, I'm currently working with our Youth Pastor as I have felt called into ministry and am exploring wha that is supposed to look like.

Have been involved in many ministries over the last 25 years... haven't been involved recently due to many reasons. Ministries included ushering, sound, web design, sermon recording, 4th and 5th grade boys, youth group, booking bands to play, and countercult studies and seminars.
I've planted lots of seeds over the years but only one person wanted to get saved cuz of my faithfulness to God - She was raised catholic but strayed away. All she needed was a simple explanation of the true Gospel. She accepted Christ, had an amazing transformation of heart... and later we got married and recently celebrated our 15th anniversary. Her fruit surpassed mine years ago ! God is very cool.

I am a musician in my church, I play bass guitar, lead guitar, or acoustic guitar depending on what's needed that week.

My wife works in early childhood, mostly newborns to 2-year-olds. She also delivers a small gift to people who fill out a visitor card their first time at the church.

We co-lead a small group Bible study on Weds. nights.

UnWorthy I want to bless you with a blessing that Paul gave to the Ephesian church. Going into full time ministry is a most admirable thing to do!! It is very rewarding and also very challenging!! But if God calls you, He will provide for you and your ministry!! He always does if we stay true to Him and maintain our first love!!

16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and heightó 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

I pray this blessing for you and that the Lord would grant you Wisdom and courage to face every challenge. Also just from my experience, people will not always remember what you preached or taught, but they will remember if you loved them and cared for them or not!!

Be blessed my brother!!

Tim
