The Nuts-and-Bolts Version:
Ministry Today is a print and online magazine serving rising leaders within the church by empowering them with effective tools for Spirit-led ministry. (And yes, that’s our vision statement as well.)
The (Slightly) Extended Version:
For more than 25 years, Ministry Today has been the premier magazine among Christian leaders. Launched in 1983 by Charisma magazine founder Stephen Strang, Ministry Today was created to assist, inform and encourage pastors within the charismatic-Pentecostal movement. Although that mission and core audience remains the same today, we’ve expanded our readership over the years to include pastors from various parts of the church at large. What we’ve discovered in the process is that all church leaders—from senior pastors to children’s ministers, from Baptist to Foursquare—have the same universal cry: Help!
That’s where Ministry Today comes in. With a renewed emphasis to serve those serving others, we’re committed more than ever to providing pastors the tools needed to empower them for the vision God has placed within them. There are rarely enough hands to help, dollars in the budget or hours in the day to see this vision through … but there are resources that can help to overcome obstacles and improve ministry effectiveness. A how-to article on hearing the Holy Spirit more. An easy-to-follow profile on a thriving church’s singles ministry. A highlighted ministry tool that can make life easier for an entire church staff. These are the nuts and bolts of improving a Spirit-led ministry.
A bi-monthly magazine in print and a daily one online, Ministry Today does more than just inform Christian leaders; it connects them—to fellow pastors, to a movement, to ministries and companies that can come alongside them, and (most importantly) to God.
