Where Can I Serve?
Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of His Dwelling Place is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. His Dwelling Place members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins.
A Storehouse: Our desire is to build a storehouse to supply the spiritual needs as well as natural needs of each individual through the teaching and imparting of the Word of God. We will pattern the storehouse after the mandate of Joseph who operated in wisdom and understanding to store during the good years to be prepared for the years of lack that were to follow. Gen. 47:13-15, Duet. 28:1-14, Mal. 3:10
THE GREAT COMMISION: His Dwelling Place will fulfill our Master’s Great Commission by sending out teams of Saints into the highways and byways, compelling people to come into the Kingdom of God with supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit and God’s love extended with open arms to draw them. We will gather the harvest through home fellowships, evangelism outreaches, and mission trips. We will encourage the harvest through discipleship, teaching, and mentoring. Luke 14:21-23
Music & Drama
God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. Still others get involved in drama. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of His Dwelling Place, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.
The usher team at His Dwelling Place fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.
Media & Technology
Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of His Dwelling Place. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication.
Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Several couples at His Dwelling Place serve other families as marriage counselors. Their role in listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.
Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. His Dwelling Place is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers to our Prayer Warriors team, pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.
In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, His Dwelling Place holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.
