There are certain times when people need both financial help and encouragement during a difficult time and the benevolence ministry exists to evaluate and assist in such situations. In Christ, we are called to come beside, encourage and assist people who are struggling through a difficult situation in their life.
If you have a benevolence need, please contact Traci Davis for more information.
The Financial Counseling ministry involves working with individuals or couples who want to improve their financial situation or habits. We can help people in numerous areas, such as putting together budgets, designing strategies to pay off debts, deciding how much they can spend on a home, or planning for college or retirement. We are all stewards of God’s provision in our lives. In Christ, we are called to help people know how to please God in their financial dealings.
In Matthew 21 Jesus said, “My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” We want to encourage and support prayer within the body here at Northeast. We want people to develop an intimate relationship with God and each other. At Northeast, we desire to enlist, educate, equip and encourage our body here to devote themselves to prayer, knowing it is powerful and effective. Dependence on God through prayer is foundational to our church and we want to provide multiple opportunities for dependence on prayer to be fostered.
The Barnabas Ministry is a ministry of encouragement, a method of connecting those who are no longer able to attend Northeast, either as shut-ins or temporarily because of illness. If you are a volunteer in this ministry, you can access the Barnabas Ministry resources here.
If you would enjoy visiting our shut-ins once a month or spending time with those who are in the hospital and/or rehab, please contact Sylvia Staley to set up your training.
