From the Editor: You Matter. Your Ministry Matters.

You and your ministry are important, and we want to come alongside you in whatever season you're in.

Serving Jesus is the best work around.

Ministry is a lot of things. It can range from mopping the floor, to teaching a lesson, to simply being a friend. And although many times it is challenging, it is the most rewarding work on the planet.

Sometimes, as ministry leaders, you’ll have a lot of support. And sometimes you’ll have a lack of resources, time, and help.

In addition, there are times that you will flourish. And times will come when He calls you to be faithful and not necessarily “successful.” There are others when you will fall short and tire out.

Today, I’m here to tell you that it’s okay. All of it.

He sees you. All of you. Your past mistakes, your current state, your successes and failures, and what’s to come. You see, that’s what makes His love so rich.

The messy, hard, beautiful work that you do doesn’t go unseen. The people that you serve may not see it. But Jesus sure does.

He sees you. All of you. Your past mistakes, your current state, your successes and failures, and what’s to come. You see, that’s what makes His love so rich.

I am so thankful for His love. As His child—one who messes up daily—I’m thankful for His grace, mercy, and His amazing ability to not hold grudges. Certainly, I’m beyond thankful for His dominion.

I do what I do, because of the grace of God. And my hope is that we, at Ministry Spark, can support you while you do what you do—helping people come to love, know, and follow Jesus.

The messy, hard, beautiful work that you do doesn’t go unseen. The people that you serve may not see it. But Jesus sure does.

You Are Seen.

At Ministry Spark, we see you too. We get it.

Many of our team members are ministry leaders, volunteers, and Sunday school teachers ourselves. That is to say, we all support the greater church in some capacity. And we see you.

Therefore, it is our hope to come alongside you in the excitement, in the mess, in the hardships—whatever time it is that you are facing.

We want to encourage you and build you up in God’s truth. What’s more, we want to give you access to fun, free resources too!

Thank you for everything you are doing for the kingdom. We appreciate your diligence to push through, your passion for your mission, and your obedience to Jesus.

You see, you were made for this.

Sometimes following Jesus looks like scrubbing marker off the wall—and sometimes it’s throwing a hyped-up, action-packed event for your kids. In both of these situations and countless others, He says follow Me.

So if we could affirm you in one thing, it’s that our precious Savior will never leave you or forsake you. He is with us to the end! Therefore, we rejoice!

Let Us Help.

With all that is wrapped up in ministry, let us help. Let us help you in the 101s of ministry, in your leadership, with resources, in navigating culture, and with your volunteers. And let us walk alongside you in the best way we can.

Take this survey to let us know what you need and share what you want to see on Ministry Spark.

You Matter. Your Ministry Matters.

We hope that you can take the time to share with us, as we want to do our very best to support you.

So, with that, thank you.
