Ministry Leader: Brad Kittle, Outreach Pastor
VGF Outreach provides opportunities to those in the body to serve in the local community and overseas through evangelism and social services. Our ministry has a strong benevolence aspect with out food pantry and defenders ministry meeting needs in the body and in the community. Our international outreach also has a strong benevolence side, as we support several orphanages and make an annual trip to build houses for, and serve, the poor in Honduras. As an extension of the Serve component of the body, we connect people to VGF through benevolence and community outreaches. We also provide opportunities for people to serve in local nursing homes, jails, and the Salvation Army as well as various community outreaches.
An example of an Outreach event would be the Nursing Home Ministry at the Flintridge Nursing Home located at 1450 West Main St. in Newark. We meet every Tuesday at 2 pm to worship, pray, and fellowship with the elderly. We are able to serve them practically by listening, praying, and ministering to them just as Christ did. For more information about this particular ministry opportunity please contact Craig Burdick at 740-258-7571 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Salvation Army, Kindred Healthcare and letter writing ministries are great entrances into the Outreach ministry. We serve food to the poor at the Salvation Army, minister to the elderly at Kindred Health Care and write letters to those in prison through our VGF letter writing ministry. VGF Outreach seeks to accomplish the great commission by making disciples of Christ through injecting the hope of the Gospel of Jesus in a practical way.
