Fuel Up for Your Mission
The most important work in the world is ministry: helping people of all ages come to know, love, and follow Jesus. And, ministry can be hard work—really hard work.
That’s why we’ve created Ministry Spark, a go-to place for ideas and inspiration. These ideas come in all shapes and sizes—from articles posted weekly to free downloadable resources made for you!

Ministry Spark is by and for people serving on the front lines of the local church and Christian organizations—the teachers, leaders, pastors, and doers of all things ministry. And, as doers of all things ministry—we know how hard it can be.
That’s why when you visit here, you’ll find free resources (for you and your ministry), valuable insights from trusted practitioners, and the latest ministry trends.
