Community Ministries

Community ministries are those services intended to address the needs of an entire community rather than just individuals. Traditional Christian ministries over the centuries have included establishing schools, hospitals, clean water projects, relief projects (especially after disasters), and rescue missions.

Other kinds of projects include cleaning parks, beaches, or streets. It might extend to undertaking needs that the community infrastructure can't do (for lack of funds or legal authority).

The activities of community ministries are not constrained to physical needs, it also extends to spiritual needs. The Vision Ukraine ministries to parents of disabled children or ministries to refugee communities are examples. However, organizing or leading public prayers or demonstrations against injustices or for public projects to protect children are examples of community ministries as well.
