When Jesus was on earth, He summed up His ministry with a single statement: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” Jesus had a 360º ministry.

All too often, churches tend to focus on just one or two of these aspects, but as followers of Christ, our mission is the same as His—to have a 360º ministry.

But before you can lead a 360º ministry, you must first be a 360º person—saved, healed, set free, discipled, equipped and empowered. Connect focuses on ministering to you as an individual. And when you’re walking in each of these six areas, you can’t help but have that impact on your entire ministry—it flows out of you naturally.
