God works through His kingdom, which is not limited to your individual ministry or your denomination.
Why not leverage this principle in your individual ministry?
I’ve personally observed God moving most in partnership with other ministries.
Most Christians are a result of kingdom work, whether it was the intention of individual ministries or not. I can give you example after example of this reality through hearing the testimonies of collegians.
Ministry life is oftentimes so busy, we can’t see beyond our small picture of obligations and responsibilities in our individual ministries; the kingdom is much bigger than individual ministries.
Have you looked at the bigger picture? That is, where God is moving on your campus and throughout the world, not just within your ministry…
The goal of your ministry should not be tracking attendance at your events, but rather, making disciples of all nations; this is kingdom minded. This means planting small seeds everywhere you go.
A kingdom minded ministry serves people not because of potential ministry investment, but because it’s a command of God and a kingdom investment.
A kingdom minded ministry provides a needed campus community service rather than looking more like a business that advertises with a sales pitch. Kingdom minded ministries understand the campus DNA and engages it’s community through service networking.
What if your ministry strategy didn’t revolve around your ministry, but the kingdom of God? Does your programming revolve around your individual mission or the mission of the kingdom?
Beware! Kingdom minded ministries may fly in the face of ministry growth techniques.
A kingdom minded ministry celebrates what God is doing outside an individual ministry because Christ exalting ministries are synergistic and spiritually holistic.
Sometimes the best thing for you to do is release a student to another ministry for the best interest of that student’s faith development.
Be an incarnational tentmaker.
Confuse people with your love and service to leverage the hope of the Gospel in order to live out the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. The small things you do may not affect your ministry, but make a kingdom difference. You are constantly planting gospel seeds with your life and apart of potential kingdom work
Work alongside other Christ exalting ministries. Together we can better accomplish His Mission more-so than individually or even denominationally.
How do you start? Serve your campus with a “no strings attached” relationship; this will plant gospel seeds and open doors to share with unbelievers and help partner with believers.
Be a small part of His BIG Story until all have heard!
