Our Ministries
 
Here at Iotla, ministry is not an end in itself; it is a means to an end.  The end or goal in all of our ministries is that people who come on the Christian journey with us are strengthened and enriched in their process of following Jesus.20150317_093447_resized_1 (1) 
 
Of course, a Jesus-follower needs a number of things in order to be faithful in following Jesus as Lord.  For one thing, we all need to worship.  Worship is the life-blood of a Jesus-follower.  It keeps our attention on Jesus, where it needs to be.  It gives us focus, encouragement, hope, and helps deepen our spiritual wisdom.
 
We also realize that worship needs to be of many different types if it is help us be life-long disciples.  Just as a healthy meal includes a certain amount of protein, some complex carbohydrates, and lots of vegetables, so healthy worship includes a certain amount of individual worship, some family worship, and lots of public worship with other believers.  We strive to help encourage and support all the many worship needs here at Iotla.
 
In addition to worship, Jesus-followers need to study the Bible, learn about what Christians believe, deepen their understanding of the world around them and other people out there in the world, and be actively involved in serving others in Jesus’ name.
 
We strive to provide ministries here at Iotla that will help believers continue to learn, grow, and serve in all of these ways.
