Types of Ministry

Ministry in different shapes and sizes

God calls each of us, with our different skills, gifts and passions, to a whole range of types of ministry. For some this will be based mainly in a Church or Christian community setting, for others in the home or other workplace, and others may be called to specific mission fields. Some are called to ordained ministry, others to authorised or other forms of lay ministry.

If you are considering a calling to a form of full or part-time Christian ministry, you may find it helpful to look at some of the links to Christian organisations below.  Please note, these are just some of the many options to explore.
