This ministry seeks to encounter singles through sure biblical and common sense information (Hosea 4:6; Proverbs 19:2-3). This ministry seeks to empower and energize singles to know who they are in Christ, to make right choices, and build spiritual and relational wholeness (I Corinthians 6:19, 12; II Corinthians 6:14, 7:32); encouraging singles in their life of singleness (Acts 13:47, Matthew 5:13-16). The desired outcome is to impact the world’s misconception that a life of singleness is a time of loneliness and despair but a time of personal growth and spiritual development.

We will support the Pastor and all ministries in their events and educational endeavors.
The purpose of this mission is to assist church members and the general public (community) with basic needs, which are considered to be “hands up” in an effort to help families maintain
health and well-being.
The purpose of the music ministry is to exalt Jesus Christ in word, song and instruments. We provide inspiration in harmony with our voices & instruments and therefore, commit our vocal
and instrumental gifts to the Lord and serve under His divine power. The music ministry plays a vital role in the worship experience by preparing hearts and minds to receive the Word of God.

Minister of Music
Our vision is to feed the sheep of our flock developing a scriptural based sound doctrinal foundation. Our goal therefore is to insure Disciple growth in Bible knowledge and understanding. The New Disciples Ministry uses a very simple and yet tremendously powerful
tool often called the “Roman Road.” It is found in the book of Romans. Each of the verses is equential and beautifully designed to help us, to present to believers, Christ’s plan of salvation to unbelievers. Keep in mind, however; that whatever approach is used, it should be done in a ministry of love and care.
