Where Can I Serve?
In some churches, committees have meetings and make decisions which decide the actions of other people. In contrast, Ministry Teams are groups that actually do ministry. Teams start with the people and build the ministries around the gifts of those individuals.
God has placed the church in the position of carrying the gospel to the world and equipping Believers for service. Ministry teams provide tools for ministry action and helps equip Believers to reach the world for Jesus Christ.
We have Five Ministry Teams at IBT.
1. MISSIONS TEAM
It has been said, “You increase the health of a New Testament congregation by its sending capacity rather than its seating capacity.” The Indianapolis Baptist Temple supports 25 missionary families in 20 different countries. We have also planted several churches in our city. It is our goal and desire to plant 25 new churches in the city of Indianapolis.
The Missions Ministry exists as a way for members of IBT to fulfill the church’s calling to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the entire world.
Please contact Greg Dzula. if you desire to know more about this wonderful ministry.
2. MAGNIFICATION TEAM
Psalms 34:3 proclaims, ” O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together”.
We believe that everyone in the church should be involved in magnification and worship. So, whether your interest lies in the choir, instrumental music, drama, visual arts, the praise team, or just singing to The Lord with all your heart, magnification and worship is for you!
The Magnification Team is responsible to oversee and plan our weekend services, special worship emphasis events and provide excellent music for worship.
If you have questions or would like to know how you could become involved in the Magnification Ministry, please contact Dave Turner.
3. MEMBERSHIP TEAM
The Membership Team is responsible for the care and education of the members of IBT. The Membership Team support groups for congregational care, fellowship and worship. They also provide support for and during specific stages of life such as:
New Parents, College Students, Loss of mate by death, Loss of mate by divorce, Weddings and Funerals, Pastoral Care, Hospital Visitation, and Food and Clothing
If you have any questions about the Membership Ministry please contact Ellery Hunsley
4. MATURITY TEAM
The Maturity Ministry seeks to lead our members into deeper spiritual commitment and help them develop spiritual maturity. Some of the tools used to accomplish this task are:
Bible studies, Small growth groups, Church wide spiritual growth campaigns, Devotional guides and materials, and other resources to help believers
Greg Dzula leads the Maturity Ministry at IBT. If you want to know more about this ministry please feel free to contact him.
5. MINISTRY TEAM
God has given each member of His body one or more special abilities, which are to be used for the purpose of unifying the body of Christ and for the growth of God’s Kingdom. We do not choose which gifts we will receive. God bestows these gifts upon us through the work of the Holy Spirit.
