Scott Stearman is passionate about urban ministry, social justice, human rights and believers’ role in making a kingdom difference on earth. Kirkwood, Mo., has benefitted from that passion. Now New York will.
Benevolence ministries have been an expression of churches since the first century when congregations assisted other churches, some of them far away on the early mission field. Early Christians looked out for each other with care. Jesus advocated for the needy indiscriminatingly.
Your church has started a ministry that meets needs and creates opportunities to share the good news of Jesus Christ. The ministry’s future is bright and is positioned to grow. The challenge standing in the way is how to fund its future.
