What is a van or bus ministry?
Its an outreach program sponsored by a local church that regularly uses buses or vans to transport people, most often children, to evangelistic and discipleship programs as well as other special events.
A bus or van ministry provides the local church an opportunity to obey Christ’s command to “go and make disciples of all nations”. Through this ministry unchurched children hear and respond to the Gospel. But a bus or van ministry goes beyond evangelism. Through the discipleship ministries of the local church the children also participate in discipleship ministries such as Sunday school and children’s worship.
Through a bus or van ministry the local church moves outside its walls into the streets of the neighborhoods around it. The church becomes known to the people of the neighborhoods not just as a building but as a group of caring people. Also, the church gets to know the people/ children—who they are, what their lives are like, what their needs are.
Help us in supporting one of our Community-based outreach programs through prayer. Many to all of the children we have been ministring to in the bus ministries have never been in a church or knows about Jesus and the Love, grace and mercy of a Father.
