Help Your Church Find their Identity and Become the Hands and Feet of Christ.

It’s good to talk about ministry. It’s better to do it, and do it passionately.

In 2008, the United Methodist Church lifted up “Four Areas of Focus” for ministry, and churches have responded. But at Ginghamsburg Church, in the rust-belt town of Tipp City, Ohio, the church has been doing exciting and effective ministry in those four areas for 35 years and more.

  • Engaging in Ministry with the Poor
  • Improving Global Health
  • Developing Principled Christian Leaders
  • Creating New and Renewed Congregations

The work has led to a host of creative ministries and organic growth…because they were meeting the needs of their community and their world as the hands and feet of Christ.

The book comes with a built-in facilitator Guide to encourage pastor peer groups and other leadership groups interested in deepening the discussion.
