What is the Ministry of Helps?
"1 Corinthians 14:40 ... let all things be done properly and in an orderly manner"
The Ministry of Helps sustains, provides and allow the ministry and vision God has given our pastor to proceed in a proper and orderly manner.
H = having
E = enough
L = loving

The Ministry of Helps is about serving, helping, following and covering. It is work, but it provides great rewards. It is about serving and assisting so ministry can take place in someone else's life. It is about making an investment in the life and ministry of others.
