About For the Work.
About "For the Work of the Ministry"
For the Work of the Ministry was started to help other like-minded Baptist youth workers and preachers, who have a burden to reach young people. Through weekly articles, game resources, event ideas, sermon outlines, promotional documents, power-point slides, book resources, podcasts, sermon illustrations, and more, we seek to help youth pastors, workers, volunteers and anyone else who works in youth ministry. For The Work is a free resource that seeks to truly come along side those serving the Lord and provide resources for the work of the ministry.
The idea behind For the Work.
For the Work comes from the verse Ephesians 4:12 - "For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ." While we understand that this is in the context of God appointing several areas of leadership in the church for these very reasons, it is also our goal to utilize a principle found in this portion of scripture to help, encourage, and provide sound resources for those serving in some form of youth ministry.
