The English word MINISTRY is derived from the Greek word διακονία (diakonia) which is derived from the Greek word, διάκονος (diakonos), which means one who executes the commands of another, esp. of a master, a servant, attendant, minister. 1 Peter 4:10 tells us, “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” For Cyber Ministries, ministry is not a one-time action or a series of predetermined actions but a life style build on developing lasting and meaningful relationships.
Being a for-profit organization, the ministries we are called to engage in by God are funded by the revenue we raise through the professional services we provide. In order to be better stewards, we try to minimize our expenses and overheard when possible; allowing us to redirect 60% of our income back into ministry.
A pastor once said, “If you’re going into ministry as an occupation and not because you’re called, you’re going into it for the wrong reasons. Bill Hybels once wrote, “I find myself all throughout my week being reminded of what actually defines church. It’s not some amorphous or corporate-feeling organization that I’m spending all these hours trying to fix or to advance. It’s a living, breathing, pulsating organism that is evolving real-time based on the thousand ways we choose to care for each other, listen to each other, hold each other up when the rug has just been yanked out from beneath out feet. Interdependence, vulnerability, listening, giving of ourselves. Can you hear the Spirit whisper to you now? ‘This is church.'”
Jeremiah 29:11, “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’” declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'”
