What is Marketplace Ministry?
Marketplace ministry is God’s strategic plan to reach our world for Jesus! Ministry takes place outside the four walls of the church. Christians spend most of their time in the marketplace (home, work, and community) interacting with people from all “walks of life.”
God desires to use marketplace ministers to reverse the downward spiral, where corruption and sin are running rampant and the family structure is being destroyed. God’s people are the instruments of change in the earth.
Why Marketplace Ministry?
Well, in most cities in America, there are an abundance of Christian churches; some are located on the same street. People have access to various types of bibles and resources to help them study.
Book stores carry Christ-centered self-help books, DVDs, and Christian music. Due to technological advancements, especially social media, people have heard of Jesus, but still do not know Him.
