Sadly, sin and brokenness, as well as, an abundance of souls and spirits that are grieving and pleading for help, still prevail today. It is realize daily, the need of the work of the Holy Spirit to enter and transform lives, is imperative. It is one’s intentional goal, as Christian counselor, to be an inkling of hope and light, an image-bearer of the living God, who radiates hope and deliverance to broken-hearted people of the church and community (Clinton and Ohlschlager, p 697).

Over the years, many models have been developed and implemented to endeavor to make disciples. Some of the models have been effective and others have not. Among some of the most biblical and efficient models are the ones that involve small groups. Within the small groups models, they can be broken down into further detail, such as pastoral involvement, the church’s goal, missions mindedness, etc. In this paper, I will explain my philosophy of small groups in a church and the importance of the relational group in authentic disciple making. I will also explain how missional groups can help the body of Christ move out into the community. Finally, I will summarize my status in regards to living in community with other believers and being missional with that community.
They require the back-up of members of the church; it is, therefore, a necessity that whoever is called to accomplish a certain task in the ministry should adhere to it so that everyone has the role to play. It requires prayers and nurturing of talents such as singing. The church should hence be equipped with instruments so and youths be trained in their operations such that pastoral ministry and other young ministries in a church are brought together through various functions to do missions.
Prostitution has always been a worldwide problem especially in Chicago, Illinois. The exploitation of prostitution seems to be one of many serious issues in inner-city Chicago. Some may ask the question as to “what changes occur in a woman’s life to make her want to live this type of lifestyle?” Are prostitutes always the victim or do some control their work, and even enjoy sex? After experiencing human trafficking, drug addiction, and prostitution for 25 years of her teenage and adult life, Brenda Myers-Powell’s life story answered those questions. She survived the harsh lifestyle of prostitution and serves as a mentor to the youth to prevent them from encountering the trauma she did for many years of her life.

Once I finished my thought, I sat on the couch and waited for I response. What I received was a blank stare and a look of disbelief. He stated that he would lose me to God and he did not know how to deal with what I just said to him. He collected himself and stated that he would support me in this journey and would try not to pass judgment on what was taking place. He stated that he understood that I had to do the will of God and he could not stand in the way of my calling. He also stated that he was not sure how this journey would look or how he could help me study to become a better teacher and minster. I let him know that his support is all I need at the moment and there would be days I may need his should to lean and cry on.
The community and church context is the foundation of the ministry project because it describes the church history. The history of the community and church context explains the past, present, and future. In other words, it is the root which brings life to the community and church context. The past history of the church was watered with tradition, the present is the nuture of leadership, and the future of the church rests on the light the Holy Spirit. The past, present, and future of the community and church are an integral part of the ministry project. These parts will demonstrate the demographic and the make up of the community and church as a whole.
