My name is D Burchfiel and I am a follower of Jesus Christ. My view of ministry is that ministry is about providing opportunities for people to connect to Christ, to the church, and to the community. Everything about the Christian life is relational. We become Christians through a personal relationship with Christ. As a person connects to Christ he will find his purpose in worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, and missions..
I believe every church must be kingdom focused. Having a kingdom focus means we must reach those that aren’t at church while ministering to those that are. Being kingdom focused means not just inviting someone to church, but also inviting them to dinner, to our home, and into our lives. Until we are willing to develop relationships with people, they won’t be interested in our churches. Being kingdom focused also means being open to doing ministry in new ways while holding to the inerrant message of the Word of God.
