Ministry is an interesting word. The word has traditionally been understood as “service.” However the Greek word is more than service. It means “a go-between,” a person who “mediates” or “facilitates.” The Latin word was used also of men who were bouncers at a wine party (imagine that).
Ministry at Agape is an opportunity to work with those in the community by empowering others to come to God. We believe that Agape stands in our culture to help people come to God. However, we also try to bring Jesus to our community.
