Our Ministries

We believe ministry in a church is the strategy by which we accomplish God’s priority of making disciples. Below is the overall strategy of New Pleasant Grove. Each ministry/auxiliary/committee of the church should help fulfill at least one the strategic purposes of Evangelism, Fellowship, Teaching, Serving, Worship.

GO Tell everyone about the Son of God - Evangelism Ministries

Evangelism Ministry

Every member in our church community is encouraged to lead people to Christ and the church. To help accomplish this goal, we encourage members to share their personal testimonies as often as you can. Your testimony is made up of three parts.

  1. Your life before Jesus Christ
  2. Your life when you confessed and accepted Jesus Christ as your personal savior
  3. our present life since your confession

Check back soon to find out more about upcoming Evangelism opportunities
